Hi, may i ask.....

can an employer terminate service of a lady who is just pregnant?

The lady was advised by doctor not to approach those face treatment machine due to pregnancy, so the lady told the employer so.

The employer said "if you cannot operate those machine, there is no point I hire you"

In summary.... the employer expressly stated he fired the employee due to pregnancy.

The lady is under a one year contract.

Please advise that lady to either complain to the Labour Department or the Industrial Relations Department.
