What I mean is: if they only kept on half of the people, they can probably legitimately claim that the decision was business-related and not discrimination-related. Although they'd have to show why it wasn't.
If you were the only one released, then that's different.
Sounds like typical retail to me. Some supermarkets (*cough*Morrisons*cough*) are appalling.

You need to be able to show that you've shown willing - so if they've said they're waiting for another manager to get back, and you know you've got 3 months then you need to give them a chance to respond before you start going down the tribunal line.
If you get closer to the 3 month limit then submit the form, for the time being, do what ACAS say.

I expect to be shot down here, but I really think you would be better off just droping this and moving on. Over late pregnancy and potentially into the time when your child is born you will need to pick and choose which battles to fight and which to let go on a number of things, not just work. Given how little you're likely to ulimately benefit from this even if it goes in your favour, I think I'd be trying to draw a line under it. You can spend your energy on better and more constructive things than court arguments and lining the pockets of lawyers.

I don't want my job back at all and wouldnt take it if they offered it to me. I'd like an apology because as it stands I can't even use them as a reference even though I worked hard whilst I was there. And I'd like compensation.

Sigh. This is not "apathy" this is more accepting the reality of what could turn out to be a protracted legal issue during a stressful time and about being selective around what stress to take on board.
But whatever, the reaction is pretty much what I expected to see.
