Teacher fired from Haredi nursery for living with boyfriend wins lawsuit

The UK Mirror reported that an unmarried nursery teacher fired for living with her boyfriend has won compensation:
A teacher at an orthodox Jewish nursery who was sacked for 'living in sin' with her boyfriend has won her case of religious and sexual discrimination.

Zelda de Groen, 24, was subjected to a 'humiliating' interview by bosses who probed her private life and told her at 23 she should be married.

They told her that having kids outside of marriage would 'not be tolerated' in her workplace.
Why? Because they don't want a Jewish woman to bear more children to rebuild a society decimated during WW2? For people who supposedly want there to be more children in the Jewish world, they sure don't seem very enthusiastic when a bachelorette might have them. It's not the worst that could happen, and if the father doesn't take responsibilities, that's his fault, not hers.
She was hauled out of classes for the 'chat' after some parents at the Gan Menachem nursery had complained when it became known she was living with her boyfriend Oz Waknin.

During the hour-long dressing down she was told by her bosses headteacher Miriam Lieberman and nursery manager Dina Toron that a solution could be to lie and just deny she was living with him.

They thought that the problem had been solved but when she asked for an apology about her treatment two days later she was disciplined and sacked from the nursery in Hendon, north London.

Ms de Groen, now 24 who has since married Mr Waknin, successfully sued the nursery for direct and indirect religious discrimination, direct sex discrimination and harassment.

In their ruling, the tribunal panel said: "She was dealing with senior managers who were behaving rather like an overbearing mother and elder sister.

"The effect was undoubtedly humiliating, degrading and offensive.

"The claimant was distraught during and after the meeting and reasonably so. She was being probed about her private life in ways which suggested that she was behaving badly and foolishly.

"The conduct of the respondent after that meeting was equally offensive and hurtful to the claimant and continued her humiliation and degradation."
I'd say the parents who complained about her living with her boyfriend out of wedlock have to apologize for causing her a lot of trouble over something that's petty compared to topics like Islamofascism, which is already eating up the UK as we speak.

Interestingly, it also says here:
She had worked at the nursery for four years, rising to the position of team leader and although the nursery was run on ultra-orthodox lines many of the parents whose children went there held different beliefs within the Jewish spectrum.
Whether or not the clients changed, they did not set a good example by making things hard on a woman who's trying to earn a living. Unwed couples are not the worst thing to happen. It's just whether they commit serious offenses like murder and assault that matters. The parents and managers alike were being extremely petty. If it was such a big deal to them, they could have turned to her themselves and tried to encourage her to marry sooner, but instead, they chose to raise a tempest in a teapot and damage somebody else's career and pride. Poor example.
