It is highly unlikely that an employer will admit dismissing an employee due to their pregnancy. There are some circumstances will a dismissal during pregnancy may be the foundations such as gross misconduct or persistent poor performance. If a pregnant employee is being dismissed for poor performance an employer would be expected to follow the company’s formal disciplinary dismissal procedures and give the pregnant employees warning. This would be completely fair however if the dismissal or any detrimental treatment is because of the employees pregnancy or reason connected with it (for example pregnancy related sickness absence) this will be classed as discrimination.
An employee is automatically entitled to written reason for their dismissal without requesting this information.
