For Immediate Release
August 17, 2011 our firm filed suit against Triumph Aerostructures, LLC on behalf of our client, alleging that our client was discriminated against in violation of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 and was subject to unfair treatment in violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The Defendant, Triumph Aerostructures, LLC, is a global leader in manufacturing and overhauling aerospace structures systems and components. The lawsuit makes the following allegations:
In June of 2010, our client became pregnant and requested leave under the FMLA. Two months later, she was terminated for what was described as a reduction in force. Later, on September 9, 2010, Triumph Aerostructures, LLC decided to rehire our client but relocated her. In December of 2010, our client again requested FMLA leave for her upcoming delivery. From November 2010 to February 2011, our client suffered off hand comments and remarks by her supervisor who created a hostile environment and retaliated against her because of her upcoming maternity leave. On the day that she was to get induced into labor, our client was informed that she would again be terminated due to a reduction enforced. However, the following month, Triumph Aerostructures, LLC hired four (4) other employees that were assigned to our client’s former work group.
