Illegal to Cut Hours because Pregnant
The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against a restaurant who the EEOC alleges discriminated against an employee because of her pregnancy. The EEOC’s lawsuit alleges that the employer took adverse actions against a server after she informed the restaurant owner of her pregnancy. After learning of the pregnancy, the restaurant cut the server’s hours, refused to place her back in her position as a server after she gave birth, and then eventually fired her. Such alleged actions are a violation of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. See EEOC v. Maurizio Trattoria Italiana, LLC, No. 3:18-cv-00338-MMA (S.D. Cal.).
