Prep school settles lawsuit over firing of pregnant teacher

by

MILWAUKEE (WSAU)  A private prep school in Milwaukee has agreed to pay $37,500 dollars to settle claims that a staff member was fired because she was pregnant.

The U-S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the University School of Milwaukee, after the K-to-12 facility let Mallory Barker go. She was a part-time arts-and-crafts director in an after-school program, and the E-E-O-C said her pregnancy is what got her terminated. Under the settlement, the University School must also train its managers and employees about pregnancy discrimination and prevent such actions in the future.

The school said it was not admitting liability, but it was in the school’s best interest to settle the case.
