Pregnant art teacher was unfairly sacked
Thursday 07 June 2012
An art teacher at an independent girls' school who was sacked after becoming pregnant has won her case of unfair dismissal.
Rebecca Raven, 32, was told by Howell's School in Denbigh, North Wales, that she was losing her £23,000-a-year job after finding out she was pregnant.
A Shrewsbury employment tribunal ruled that the school was guilty of unfair dismissal under Section 99 of the Employment Rights Act and of discrimination under the Equality Act.
"I am just so pleased to have won this case. It was terrible being told I was losing a job I loved," Mrs Raven said. "I couldn't believe it when the school told me I was being dismissed."
A school spokesman could not be contacted.
