The dismissal of a Bell Mobility employee who was on maternity leave was a legitimate business decision and not related to her leave, an adjudicator has ruled.

Margaret Moday was hired by Bell Mobility in April 2000 and worked in a variety of sales, customer service and administrative positions over the next decade. In 2009, she became a performance management co-ordinator (PMC), responsible for providing administrative support for team leads.
