Employer ‘wrongly assumed pregnant woman would job share’

A travel company that assumed a pregnant employee would be happy to switch to a job share when her role was at risk of redundancy has lost an employment tribunal.

The Liverpool Employment Tribunal heard that Ms Zlotnikova worked for STA Travel’s Liverpool office from December 2012 until 29 July 2016 when she was dismissed through redundancy. The company employed her as a global travel help (GTH) executive.

Zlotnikova took maternity leave between April 2013 and November 2014. When she returned, she requested flexible-working arrangements, which involved job-sharing and a three-day week. STA agreed to this. However, Zlotnikova was also expected to operate an incident report desk (ISD), with no pay increase or formal training.
