A waitress who was fired when she was pregnant has received over €14,000 in compensation from an Equality Tribunal.
She claimed she had been subjected to harassment, sexual harassment and discriminatory dismissal on the grounds of her gender and race.
Lexor Entertainment Limited, which runs the Russian-themed diner, denied all of the allegations.
Tara Coogan, of the Equality Tribunal, ruled Ms Petrakova did not establish a case of discriminatory treatment, harassment or sexual harassment on the grounds of her gender or race.
However she found there had been a case of discriminatory dismissal on the gender ground and ordered the restaurant to pay the complainant €14,167.92 compensation in lieu of nine months’ salary.
