Pregnant worker wins her job back

A baby product company was ordered by the Pudong District People's Court to keep the job of a 19-year-old woman worker and pay 6,150 yuan (US$995) in salary due to her after the company fired her for premarital pregnancy, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

The court heard that the woman surnamed Xu had worked as a warehouse manager for about one year. After she found herself pregnant, she asked for a sick leave but the company rejected her request, saying her premarital pregnancy had breached the company's rules.

Xu took the leave anyway despite her boss's refusal and the company fired her later.

Xu considered the company's action was against the Law on the Protection of Women's Rights and demanded labor arbitration to restore her employment in the company. As the labor arbitration was in her favor, the company sued her to the court.

The court said the company's decision was against the clauses on the rights of women employees in China's Labor Law and ruled the company to resume the woman's employment contract and pay her due salary.
