Removal from work chat viewed as ‘less favourable treatment’ | UK | News UK News

Removing staff from work WhatsApp group chats while they are on maternity leave is discrimination, ruled an employment hearing.

Asha Lad took Lily Head Dental Practice Sales Limited to a tribunal after a male colleague refused her access to the chat.

The firm’s Chris Mayor said he felt there was “no reason” for her to have access.

Ms Law said it made her feel isolated.

Judge Rob Childe said her removal was “viewed as less favourable treatment” for someone on maternity leave.

A hearing to decide her compensation will be held at a later date.
