If an employee becomes pregnant again while on maternity leave, does she have to be put back on full pay during her pregnancy (her job is one that cannot be done by a pregnant woman) in spite of the fact that she has not returned to work? Would it be better for her to return to work in a different role for the term of her pregnancy, if one is available? And presumably she gets another period of maternity leave after the second birth?

If the employer has no other work available and dismisses her because she is unable to carry out her contract, would this be automatically unfair dismissal?

Many thanks for your help, everyone.
