Heavy Fine For ‘Bais Yaakov’ After Firing Pregnant Teacher

The following is an Arutz 7 report:

The ‘Beit Yaakov’ pedagogical center association will pay a fine of 45,000 NIS after laying off a pregnant teacher without the approval of the officer in the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Employment. The institution would terminate her employment every year in May, and re-hire her for the coming year, but refrained from doing so in 2007. The court frowned upon this fictive procedure, and explained the fine imposed as a deterrent to protect women in the precarious state of pregnancy from being removed from their positions at a time when finding a new one would be difficult.
