Woman claims she was wrongfully terminated for pregnancy bed rest

In Oct. 2007, a relatively new legal secretary at the Washington, D.C., office of a national law firm learned that she was pregnant. Unfortunately, there was a dangerous tear in her placenta. Her doctor recommended full bed rest until the tear had healed, so she took approved, short-term disability leave from her job. In Jan. 2008, she was fired from her job despite having no previous problems at the job and having been led to believe she was well regarded.

In 2009, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Supervalu's Midwest division after 110 employees with disabilities were refused the chance to return to work after disability-related leaves of absence unless they could do so without any job restrictions or limitations. In 2011, a federal judge ruled that the practice violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and ordered the company to pay the workers $3.2 million for wrongful termination and the denial of reasonable disability accommodations.

Perhaps in an extremely misguided effort to be proactive, the company arranged to have the complaining employees brought in for interviews, supposedly for an internal investigation into working conditions at the firm.
