 “We wish to make it absolutely clear that the right which is conferred to pregnant employees by law is an unfettered right, and therefore, it cannot be altered and/or removed by any employer. Thus a pregnant worker who has been employed for a period of more than twelve (12) months by any employer in this country can proceed on maternity leave with the knowledge that she cannot be subjected to the unnecessary hardship of dismissal from her job during or after such leave.”
 
TD MPD 3 of 2004 - NUDE vs High Place Enterprise Ltd
