A trainee lawyer has won her claim for discrimination against Travers Smith after the firm failed to offer her a permanent job when she became pregnant.
Katie Tantum claimed that senior associates and partners changed their attitude towards her once they knew that she was pregnant and that "no one put their hand up" for her at the end of the £42,000-a-year training contract. The firm denied the allegations and said that Ms Tantum's contract was not renewed because she had failed to show "intellectual rigour". However, the tribunal ruled that she wasn't offered a job because of the pregnancy.
