Manager was sacked by Bradford District Apprenticeship Training Agency for being pregnant, tribunal rules

AN agency which is part of the Get Bradford Working programme sacked an employee because she was pregnant, an employment tribunal has ruled.
Tribunal Judge John Robertson agreed Daniella Lewandowski had suffered “a year of hell” after she was unfairly dismissed by the Bradford District Apprenticeship Training Agency when her pregnancy came to light.
He awarded her a total of £25,000 in compensation.
The agency which has its offices in City Park, Bradford, is a joint venture between Bradford College and Bradford Council.
It describes itself as an organisation offering an “all round hassle free solution to hiring an apprentice by acting as a broker between employer and apprentice”.
Ms Lewandowski had joined the agency in 2015, initially in a lower role but later had been employed on a £33,000 a year fixed contract, the employment tribunal in Leeds was told.
She said she had been told her contract, due to end on March 31, 2016, would be extended for a year, but after her pregnancy came to light she was informed this would no longer happen.
She made legal claims against the agency for discrimination because of her pregnancy and for unfair dismissal.
