A woman in Jiangsu province has been refused a government job because she had a baby before marriage.

"It is totally unfair," Wang Ying posted on popular website tianya.cn.

In her posting she said she passed all the tests for the civil servant post at Tongshan County Procuratorate, but was told she could not have the job because she was married two months after giving birth.

Wang, 30, from Xuzhou, plans to sue the local government and demand they withdraw her rejection.

Lawyer Wu Dong agreed with her.

"I believe such a rejection is wrong," he said.

Wang was told she violated family planning laws stating that a couple can only have a child after legally registering their marriage.

"But there is no such law banning childbirth out of wedlock," Wu said.

However, Shanghai lawyer Suo Jianguo believed the decision was reasonable and was based on law.

"I believe civil servants, especially those working in the judicial system, should strictly observe the laws," Suo said.

Wang, writing online under the name "as12903", wrote that she did not violate the laws and that the government acted illegally in refusing her the job for that reason.

Her case has yet to be accepted by a court.

Xuzhou Intermediate People's Court confirmed to China Daily Tuesday that Wang delivered the indictment to the court on Monday but she was rejected because it was the wrong jurisdiction.

A court official surnamed Huang said: "Because Wang is suing the district government, she should hand her indictment to a district court."
