Ian Kennedy successfully defended an application brought by an employer, a Molly Maid franchise, to dismiss a human rights complaint brought by Ian’s client.
The Molly Maid franchise terminated the employment of Ian’s client the day after she missed work to attend urgent and necessary medical exams related to problems she was then experiencing with her pregnancy.
Notwithstanding that the client’s attending medical professionals advised the Molly Maid franchise of the medical tests, the Molly Maid franchise claimed that his client had abandoned her employment.
