According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, when the waitress informed a manager of her pregnancy, he told her she should not be working because of her condition. The manager then immediately removed the woman from the work schedule.
“An employee should never be stripped of her employment simply because she is pregnant,” said Robert Dawkins, regional attorney for the EEOC’s Atlanta District Office. “Further, it is grossly unfair and unreasonable to deprive an employee of her means of support at the very moment she and her upcoming family need it most.”
