Travers 'discriminated against pregnant trainee', tribunal hears
As a woman who worked at Travers Smith for several years, I can believe entirely that this claim is justified (although I await the outcome of the tribunal etc etc). It was a great place to work for lots of reasons - decent work, collegiate atmosphere and so on - but fairly macho. One male partner told me that it was 'no place for a woman' and to 'get out while you can'. Female associates (myself included) were worried about becoming pregnant and were often ribbed about their sex lives by male partners. Glad that I did get out when I could.
