Pregnancy Medical Leave – Case Example

Emanuel Shirazi

Vero is a young woman who experienced shocking pregnancy and disability discrimination at work. When she went on a temporary disability leave due to pregnancy complications, she was written up for falling behind on her work while on leave!

To add insult to injury, Vero’s employer ordered her to work overtime to make up for the disability time she missed, when her medical condition would not allow her to. The overtime forced on her made her medical condition worse!

Vero then complained in writing that her being written up for missing time off of work was retaliation and complained to the DFEH. One month later she was fired while she still had 9 days left on her disability leave note and 40 days before she was supposed to give birth.

We obtained justice for Vero for her employer’s despicable and outrageous wrongful termination.
