Reports relating to this case:

In Caledonia Bureau Investment & Property v Caffrey, the EAT holds that the automatically unfair dismissal provision which protects a woman against dismissal for a reason "connected with her pregnancy" is not limited to dismissals occurring during the period of pregnancy and maternity leave.
- 1 March 1998
In Caledonia Bureau Investment & Property v Caffrey (13 January 1998) EOR78D, the EAT has ruled that dismissal of a woman because of a pregnancy-related illness is automatically unfair even where the dismissal takes place after the period of maternity leave has ended. Such a dismissal is also inherently sex discriminatory, according to the EAT.
