Pregnant Care Worker Dismissed After Request To Opt Out Of 48 Hour Week Wins Tribunal Judgement

Pregnant Care Worker Dismissed After Request To Opt Out Of 48 Hour Week Wins Tribunal Judgement

A recent Employment Tribunal has backed a pregnant care worker who was sacked when she wanted to opt out of a 48 hour plus working week clause. The employee has won more than £35,000 in compensation.

The case again highlights your rights as employees  to ask  for altered working conditions during pregnancy and to have medical conditions taken into account.

The  employee, Mrs. Peart,  was unfairly dismissed, the  Middlesbrough Employment Tribunal has ruled  after she had told her employer, Care Preference, she wanted to withdraw a previous agreement that opted her out of the 48-hour maximum working week under the Working Time Directive, due to her pregnancy.

The tribunal also found her dismissal was unfavourable treatment because of her pregnancy.

The Graham Agency, working with you.
