A jury awarded former Chipotle employee, Doris Garcia Hernandez, $550,000 in a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit. Her complaint involved harassment by her superior at a New York City location for bathroom breaks, hydration, and doctor visits. Eventually she was fired. Here are the details in the New York Post.
In this era of third-wave feminism, this can be a horrific hit to the already-distressed Chipotle brand. The meme is that companies tend to make it hard for women to become mothers.
The obstacles include unpaid maternity leave at G-III. That's the company Ivanka Trump partners with for her clothing line. This is bad publicity for Trump since her signature is being the champion for women.
Also, post-maternity leave, there are allegations that the new mother is forced out. Former marketing pro at Jones Day law firm, Courtney Nathanson, filed a lawsuit regarding several times of discrimination. Those include pregnancy. Here are the details. The timing of the litigation is bad for Jones Day. It has already been taking heat for representing the Make America Great Again campaign.
