Client suffers discrimination after she announces her pregnancy

15 January 2010

Our client was employed by a music company, and had enjoyed a successfully progressing career up until she announced her pregnancy. From that point on, treatment changed, and she was subjected to bullying treatment involving derogatory comments and being ostracised by her colleagues, until she was eventually forced out of her job. This case highlights the additional difficulties faced by pregnant women who bring discrimination claims. By the time of the trial, our client had given birth and was caring for a two-month old child. She succeeded in her claim for unfair dismissal.
