If an employee whose probation period has been extended due to poor performance announces that she is pregnant will the employer be obliged to confirm her in the post?
Where a job applicant is currently on maternity leave and would not wish to start the new role until the end of her maternity leave can the potential employer reject her application for this reason?
If a suitably qualified employee who is about to go on
maternity leave wishes to apply for a vacancy, she is entitled to be considered
for the position even though she may not be able to start for a year. If the
reason she was not considered for the post was on the grounds of her imminent
maternity leave, this would amount to an act of pregnancy and maternity discrimination.
