The complainant, as sales assistant in a coffee shop, withdrew all claims except that she was dismissed due to pregnancy. The respondent sent in a written submission, arguing dismissal was due to a LIFO redundancy.
The EO found that "the respondent was unable to produce any paperwork or contemporaneous notes connected to the alleged redundancy, and the reference letter issued to the complainant likewise makes no mention of it." He awarded €15k compensation.
