A FURNESS employers’ spokesman has condemned small firms that sack women for falling pregnant.
The annual report of the Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB) in Barrow showed at least three cases of women being sacked after becoming pregnant in Barrow in the last year. The CAB won cash settlements for the women in all three cases.
Bardsea consultant Mike Pearson, North West policy chairman for the Federation of Small Businesses, said: “I think if that is happening it is not right and reflects badly on business.”
