$120k recovered for maternal leave rights

Background: We helped a client who was fired from her job as a bookkeeper at a medium-sized business after revealing her pregnancy. Upon returning to work from her first maternity leave, she faced resistance when discussing potential leave for her second pregnancy. Her manager expressed concern about frequent absences and labeled her prior leave as excessive. She was ultimately terminated before the birth of her second child for alleged performance issues.


Outcome: When we got involved, we sued the company for retaliation under the Paid Family Leave Act and the FMLA. We ended up winning the case, and recovering approximately $120,000 for the client.

Result:

$120,000
