"I currently have a high ranking VP of a big corporation who was earning $200,000 plus per year. She got pregnant and disclosed to her employer that once the baby came, she would be taking some time off from work as permitted under the FMLA (nothing more, nothing less).
Prior to taking her leave, it was time for contract renewal. She was offered 70% of what she was previously making based on “concerns” that she would be working less to take “care of her family” and that they didn’t “want her to feel pressured” into rushing back, and they would reevaluate her pay down the road if she was back full speed (How insulting). Meanwhile, her male counterpart was given a pay increase as part of his contract negotiation.
We are pursuing claims for violation of the FMLA, Gender Discrimination, and familial status discrimination." -Attorney Richard Cellers
