New Case: Conductor Fired from International Tour for Pregnancy
Instead of providing their pregnant employee the stool, Jason Michael Paul denied Eímear’s request for accommodation of her pregnancy, and eventually terminated her employment.
Eímear is being represented by Equal Rights Advocates, and her case, which is currently under investigation by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, was featured in this week’s issue of the East Bay Express.
Equal Rights Advocates Legal Director Jennifer Reisch told the Express:
“The producer essentially saw her pregnancy as a problem,” said Jennifer Reisch, legal director at Equal Rights Advocates. “Rather than working with her to make it possible for her to continue, [owner Jason Michael Paul] removed her from the tour. We think it’s a pretty clear case of discrimination based on pregnancy.”
