Well, I guess they can if the guy fit the job description, which he must do if they gave him the job/promotion.

If they told him directly that the reason they didn't give him the job was because of the baby then it's illegal unless he told them it would be hard for him to travel because of the baby.
But if he heard this from someone else then it's hard to prove.
Does he have anything in writing? The offer? The reason he didn't get it? Anything?
I have no idea on the legalities but I just wanted to offer some missposs, sorry to hear he didn't get the promotion
