Pregnancy-related discrimination and redundancy

Holly advised a client who claimed pregnancy-related discrimination after being made redundant. Her client’s argument was based upon the fact that her employer dismissed her due to absences related to IVF treatment, shortly after she had advised them that she would be undertaking IVF.

Holly successfully guided her client to the Employment Tribunal where directions were made towards a 3-day hearing; however the parties were able to reach an out-of-court settlement.
