Post-leave dismissal on pregnancy grounds

This report relates to 1 case(s)

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.
