Pregnant Woman "Discriminated Against"

Published torsdag 30 september 2010 kl 15.21

Sweden's appeal court has found that four pregnant women were discriminated against when the Swedish Social Insurance Agency refused to give them sick pay when they had to take time off work due to complications.

The women had suffered from problems such as back pain and pelvic girdle pain, and were given sick leave by their doctors. But the Social Insurance Agency refused to pay out, saying they were normal symptoms in pregnant women.

The court of appeal ruled in favour of the women, but ordered the agency to pay each woman damages of $2250, down on the original amount awarded by the district court.
