Jennifer said the company’s lawyer, who also conducted the interview, accused her of hiding the fact that she was pregnant.
“I asked for clarification and he told me because I was being dishonest not to reveal I was pregnant on my first interview or my second interview,” Rodriguez said.
Jennifer says she was eight months pregnant when she was interviewed for the job and explained that her baby bump was obvious to the eye. The sudden loss of the mother’s job left her without a source of income.
During an interview, Jennifer explained that she was irritated by her dismissal and demanded an explanation from the company.
Jennifer was told she was fired for being dishonest and covering up the fact that she was pregnant.
Jennifer says company employees asked her if she planned to keep the baby or if she would give him up for adoption instead.
She says she was also asked if she would keep the baby if there were any complications during the rest of the pregnancy or during delivery.
Jennifer says she is angry at her dismissal and has hired a lawyer to help her with an ongoing lawsuit.
She also says she chose to publicly express her anger to bring attention to the case for the benefit of other mothers.
