EEOC accuses Landau Uniforms of pregnancy discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against Landau Uniforms, which is based in Olive Branch, Mississippi.

According to the EEOC, Tara Smith was discriminated against after she informed her boss that she was pregnant.  Smith was allegely frequently reprimanded and received a negative performance evaluation in retaliation for being pregnant.

Katharine W. Kores, district director of the EEOC’s Memphis District Office, said, “The  company refused to allow Tara Smith to work simply because of her pregnancy.  Women should not be penalized for choosing to have a family and employers cannot refuse to allow women to work based on discriminatory stereotypes about pregnancy.”
