Vegas Worker Pregnancy Discrimination
Published: May 20, 2012
Vegas Worker Pregnancy Discrimination, Melodee Megia, 37, filed a lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino for pregnancy discrimination and a class-action suit for workers’ wages.
Melodee Megia, a former employee at The Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, claims she was told she was fired from her job for saying “bye bye” on the telephone instead of “goodbye” while eight-months pregnant.
Megia, 37, has filed a lawsuit against the hotel for pregnancy discrimination and a class-action suit for workers’ wages, saying employees were not paid for the time they had to wait for and change into their uniforms on a daily basis.
Megia worked at the hotel from November 2010 until August 2011, when she said she was fired “based on her pregnancy,” according to court papers filed with the Clark County District Court in Nevada last week.
Megia was a “room service sales” employee answering the telephone when hotel guests called for room service, occasionally assisting in room delivery, her lawyers said.
She is represented by Mark Thierman and Jason Kuller, labor attorneys.
Thierman said “she was denigrated verbally and was mistreated because of her pregnancy,” while having a “behind-the-scenes” job at the hotel. (ABC News)
