Pregnancy Discrimination

An assistant estimator previously employed by the insured, a general contractor, filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC alleging pregnancy discrimination. According to the claim, the former employee alleged she had advised her supervisor she was pregnant. She was terminated shortly thereafter for poor attitude and for not completing her work. The claimant also alleged she had been terminated just before annual bonuses were distributed. The defense counsel assigned by Monitor obtained a “no probable cause” finding. The defense costs exceeded $30,000.
