Pregnant Woman Unfairly Dismissed
An employment tribunal in Glasgow has held that woman was unfairly dismissed when pregnant. She was dismissed due to her absences while suffering pregnancy realted illnesses. It is amazing that even now employers think they can d0 this with impunity.
It is even more amazing that 1 in 20 women take advice on discrimination, while only 3% take any legal action at all to enforce their rights. EOC Stats (at page 4 of document).
This comes thirty-six years after the Sex Discrimination Act was first enacted in the UK.
Women need to stand up more for their right to demand equality in the workplace.
