Natalie Schroeder was seven months into a high-risk twin pregnancy when she missed a doctor’s appointment. The reason, according to Schroeder: Her boss at Advanced Neuromodulation Systems in Plano told her she had to finish a report before she could leave.
Three days later she went into labor and delivered a healthy girl—and a stillborn son.
Now she is suing Advanced Neuromodulation Systems, claiming doctors might have detected fetal distress and saved the boy’s life if she had been able to go to her appointment.
Then shortly after she returned from, the company fired Schroeder. She alleges that her termination was retaliation.
The lawsuit also names as a defendant Schroeder’s supervisor, Ross Stephenson.
Schroeder is seeking damages for lost compensation and benefits in the form of back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
