Our client was told that, because she needed a few additional months to recover from post-childbirth medical complications, her job was no longer guaranteed for the following term. We intervened and quickly secured the reassurance they should have given her from the beginning – that she would not be illegally penalized for the woeful task of propagating the human species.
Our client was fired, for totally pretextual reasons and without warning, shortly after announcing her pregnancy. First, we made sure she had the health insurance arrangements she needed to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. Then we put the fear of god in her employer and negotiated a substantial settlement payment, enabling her to enjoy a safe and peaceful labor and delivery, and a peaceful bonding time with her (now healthy and happy!) baby.
We successfully fought off trumped-up disciplinary charges brought by the Department of Education after our client faced clear retaliation for taking legitimate intermittent FMLA leave.
