Two associates get the axe after returning from maternity leave at Walker Morris

November 21, 2011 London firm Walker Morris has laid off two associates in the corporate department. The two associates had reportedly just returned from maternity leave when they were made redundant, though a spokeswoman for the firm would not confirm this detail, saying only that "following a restructuring exercise, two associates have left the firm."

The move is likely to be very unpopular at the firm; it follows a change to the maternity policy earlier this year, when the firm slashed the benefit without consulting staff.
