2 women claim to be sacked by managing agent of WP town council for being pregnant
One receives goodwill payment from WP-run town council's agent
Two women had accused the managing agent of the town council run by the Workers' Party (WP) of "unfairly dismissing" them because they were pregnant.
Their complaints against FM Solutions and Services (FMSS), which manages the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council, were made separately to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) in November last year and this May.
The disputes have been amicably settled, the ministry told The Straits Times this week, declining to disclose details of the cases for confidentiality reasons.
First to complain was a 26-year-old public relations staff member who said she lost her job last September when she was six months pregnant. She had worked for the company for about eight months.
