Gold Representing Exton Mother in Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit

November 8th, 2019

Attorney Sidney L. Gold of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. is representing an Exton mother and former employee of Urban Outfitters in a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit. The suit on behalf of the plaintiff alleges that her former employer made derogatory remarks against her after she revealed that she was pregnant in February 2016. Furthermore, she alleges that her manager told her that she could no longer perform her job from her home in Exton, Pennsylvania even though the option remained available to her coworkers. Originally, she went out on maternity leave in August 2016 and returned to find that some of her duties were taken away from her despite her stellar work performance and given to another employee who did not have children. In March 2018, the company wrongfully terminated her after she revealed to her manager that she was trying to become pregnant again. Her employer also claimed that they eliminated her job, divvied up her former responsibilities between coworkers with less experience, and that the Exton mother was ineligible to apply for any other positions within the company.

Women who become pregnant may experience negative treatment at work even though the law deems pregnancy a disability and prohibits discrimination against pregnant employees. Discrimination may come in the form of negative comments, taking away work responsibilities, demotions or being passed over for projects or promotions, and wrongful termination. Employers must hold open jobs for women who go out on maternity leave until they return to work.

If you believe that you are victim of pregnancy discrimination and wrongful termination, our Philadelphia discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. will evaluate your claim and decide on the best course of legal action. Contact us online or call us today at 215-569-1999 to schedule a free consultation.
