The restaurant’s policy forced pregnant women to stop working within the first trimester of their pregnancy, even though this is illegal.
One woman, who worked as a server and manager for three years, was laid off when she became pregnant, even though she has a note from her doctor stating that she was cleared to work until at least her 36th week. According to the lawsuit, at least eight other women were also laid off due to this pregnancy policy. The affected women are currently seeking monetary compensation through this lawsuit.
