Pregnancy Based Employment Discrimination
Client was a single, pregnant mother working in a manufacturer facility as an assembly line worker. Employee was visibly pregnant and assigned to work a task that involved repetitious lifting of heavy, packed boxes of product. When the client informed the supervisor that she would be incapable of performing this job due to her pregnancy and requested a lighter job she was belittled and humiliated in front of her coworkers for being pregnant and useless to the supervisor. After procuring a Right to Sue Letter, our firm filed suit and a mediation was soon after scheduled. At the mediation, our lawyers were able to win a sizable settlement for our client that fully compensated her for her lost wages and for the pain and suffering she endured as a result of her supervisor's egregious behavior.
Outcome: Won the Client a Sizable Settlement
