  • Pregnant woman discriminated against when probation period extended a second time

An Employment Tribunal has ruled that an employer treated a pregnant woman unfavourably by extending her probation period a second time. The employee discovered she was pregnant 5 days before starting in her new role, 7 days after accepting the job offer. Her probationary period was extended shortly after she told her employer she was pregnant, and again shortly before she was due to depart on maternity leave. The tribunal found that the reasons for the second extension were unfavourable treatment because of the pregnancy, supported by a letter written by the employer which told the recruitment agency of their disappointment that a pregnant woman was placed with them.
