indirect sex discrimination – Pregnant Then Screwed
An important update popped up on my twitter account last week: the campaign group, Pregnant Then Screwed, have been granted permission to appeal the High Court’s decision. This made me smile.
So back to court they go to challenge whether the reference period used to calculate the SEISS (Self-Employed Income Support Scheme) indirectly discriminates because there is no allowance made for non-working periods due to maternity or pregnancy related illness.
If you do not know what this matter is about, and you want to, then you can read my colleague’s blog here: https://didlaw.com/the-claimants-were-screwed-in-seisss-indirect-sex-discrimination-case which provides a short summary.
I am keeping everything crossed for a different outcome this time…
