The woman was fired on the same day she came back to work in September 2016. A Federal Court upheld a lower court ruling the sacking was sexual discrimination. 

The company says they had restructured while she woman was away – and her role was not needed. But they had already employed someone else in her role. The woman also testified she had been promoted just before announcing she was pregnant.
