Hello and welcome to Just Answer, has she been employed for more than 2 years?
Hello, thank you. Yes she has worked for them for three years.
Hi yes this would amount to unfair dismissal and also potentially sex discrimination as women on materntiy leave are protected in employment law. She should raise a grievance about the way she has been treated. If she is dismissed she should appeal and then claim using the form she will find at www.employmenttribunals.gov.uk
She is not entitled to redundancy pay as the work she was doing still exists.
I would suggest she complains about her treatment now as I have suggested.

Great, thanks very much for your answer. I will suggest she does those things.
