Comments None

A woman has been awarded €100,000 compensation after it was deemed she was discriminated against after having two pregnancies over a 20 month period and was made redundant on the basis that she was pregnant.

Denise Blatt claimed she received various pay rises and bonuses for her work at the Comfort Inn Parnell Square hotel but when she informed her employers – Palmece Limited – that she was pregnant, she received a formal letter criticising her work. Ms.Blatt said she suffered from high blood pressure during her pregnancy and believed it was due to her work environment.

The evidence was not contested and the victim was awarded 50,000 in compensation for victimisation and awarded €50,000 in compensation for discrimination.
