Unfairly dismissed for not divorcing her husband

2016-05-27 Jennifer Renney-Butland posted:

Very unusual case reported this week involving a teacher who was sacked when her husband was convicted of offences involving child pornography.

When the school where she was employed sacked her because she decided to stand by him and not to leave him, she successfully brought a claim in the Employment Appeals Court for unfair dismissal and religious discrimination on the basis that as a Christian she took her marriage vows seriously and had been put at a disadvantage because of this.

Interesting issues involved here.

Philip helped me out of a very tricky situation at work. He gave me great advice to enable me to leave my job when I wanted to and on terms which I was very happy with.
