    In Stephenson v F A Wellworth & Co Ltd (21 March 1997) EOR73C, the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland declines to adopt the reasoning of the Court of Session in Brown v Rentokil EOR61C and EOR81A and holds that dismissal of a woman for a pregnancy-related illness is on grounds of pregnancy, and thus on grounds of sex.
