Firm Achieves Justice for Pregnant Discrimination Victim
A woman working in the fashion industry sued for discrimination based on her pregnancy. Plaintiff recorded a conversation with her boss, who threatened: “If you’re pregnant during fashion week, I’ll fire you.” Plaintiff was subsequently fired when her employer learned she was pregnant. Our lawyers obtained $800,000 in damages for her discrimination suit.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
