Employers are under positive duties to protect employees who are pregnant for example by making sure the working environment does not harm the health of the mother or child.

A number of our cases have involved women whose employers have wrongly asserted that their job is ‘redundant’ when in fact the role has been given to another person.

It is important not to make assumptions or stereotype women who are or who become pregnant. Awards of compensation can be higher because this is discrimination and can also include an amount for ‘injury to feelings’ or ‘aggravated damages’ (for example by failing to investigate allegations of discrimination).
