pretextually yes. I don't think any employer will come out and say that. During her two meetings she had her union rep there with her and he even agreed that they seemed very upset about her anouncing her pregnancy to her students and that they felt it was very concerning for a childcare student to approach them about the drama and stress levels in the class and how it could effect my wife's pregnancy
A claim of discrimination may be pursued where employer has retaliated for this condition. It need not be expressly stated as the motive but may be inferred from circumstances including treatment and timing. Such a claim is typically pursued through local counsel negotiating a settlement and pursuing civil action/eeoc complaint
Is that clear?
yes sir. Thank you I appreciate it.
