A creative manager at a record publishing company is claiming sex discrimination on the grounds that she was forced out of her job after giving birth to her baby.
Luisa Berg left Notting Hill Music Group when she went on maternity leave and stated her bosses failed to make adequate allowances for her situation, the London Evening Standard reports.
The 31-year-old alleged David Loader, managing director at the company - whose clients include big names such as Beyonce and Madonna - also failed to tell her the truth with regards to why her Christmas bonus had not been received.
Ms Berg said of her ordeal: "I should have been spending these months with my daughter but instead this has taken a considerable amount of stress."
She stated the actions of the firm had been hurtful - especially after she enjoyed a successful year at the organisation, which saw her secure the soundtrack for the Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini-directed film StreetDance.
