Rigths for pregnant employees

Jemima started a job at Easy-Clean, a chain of dry cleaners, four weeks ago. She

works in a small shop and does not do the dry cleaning herself (although this is done on

the premises). She works behind the till, taking the clothes from the customers and

handing out the tickets.

She has just found out that she is pregnant, something that she did not about when she

started work. Her Doctor says it would not be good for her health or her pregnancy if she continued in her current role as the fumes from the dry cleaning fluid could have a

bad effect.

When she tells her manager of the pregnancy, he gets angry and says that if he had

known that she was pregnant, he would not have given her a job.

1. What obligations does Easy-Clean have in these circumstances?

2. What rights and remedies are available to Jemima?
