Basking Ridge, NJ asked in Employment Law for New York

Q: I’m on maternity leave and was only colleague on my team affected by a wider company RIF

My company recently had a mass layoff event. However, within my team, I was the only one affected. I’m also the only one on the team currently on maternity leave. When I asked why my job was getting cut and what would happen to my responsibilities, the answer was ‘we can’t say.’ I have long tenure, a high salary and great performance. Should I have a lawyer look into this?
