Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: Former Employee Sues Verizon

January 6th, 2017

A 45-year-old woman from Red Bank, New Jersey recently filed a lawsuit against Verizon Network Solutions, her former employer, after the company allegedly refused to grant her paid maternity leave after her twin boys were born prematurely. A previous cancer battle had left the mother with viable eggs, but unable to carry a baby to term. However, modern medicine enabled her to conceive with her own previously frozen eggs, a sperm donor, and a gestational surrogate. The employee’s sister-in-law agreed to carry her babies for her.

When the twin boys were born three months early, their mother traveled to North Carolina where her sister-in-law lives to oversee the babies’ care. The mother worked remotely from North Carolina at first, but when both of her infants passed away due to birth complications, she took disability leave for depression. Her lawsuit claims that Verizon violated disability laws when they subsequently demoted and then fired her.

Unique family situations can lead to many questions about employee rights and maternity leave, but employers who violate maternity and disability laws can and should be held accountable.
