Last year I mediated a pregnancy discrimination case and was able to successfully settle it under the Missouri Human Rights Act. We pursued this case on behalf of my client who worked for about 3 ½ months at a local retailer making $9.00 per hour. I am not at liberty to disclose the amount of the settlement, but my client was very happy with the result.
We litigated this case for about 2 years, took depositions and aggressively pursued justice for our client. Employment discrimination cases are tough, but pregnant women should not be fired -- rather they should be taken care of by responsible employers. That is the standard our community should support.
If you, a family member or loved one have experienced employment discrimination or have any questions about pregnancy discrimination, please call us at (314) 542-2222.
