€14,000 for Unfair Dismissal

A department manager at an Irish  hotel asked a seven month pregnant female colleague did she eat too much Supermac’s or was she expecting.
 The Dept Manager is alleged to have asked the Bar Manager the question the same day that the woman was dismissed from her post on September 5th 2017.
 A Workplace Relations Commission, WRC Adjudication Officer has ordered the un-named hotel to pay €14,000 for the woman’s dismissal after finding that the woman was discriminated against on the gender ground.
In her findings the oifficer found that the Bar Manager’s dismissal was tainted with discrimination and her pregnancy was a significant factor contributing to her dismissal.
The hotel is part of a 10-strong hotel group and the GM told the WRC that it would be “ludicrous” for him to make an employee redundant after being informed of her pregnancy. He stated that currently there are seven female staff members pregnant and they all are able to negotiate the process.
