Warren Tricomi Salons, with locations on New York’s Upper East Side, will pay $30,000 to settle a pregnancy discrimination suit filed by the EEOC on behalf of an assistant who claims the company re­­scinded an offer to promote her and then fired her after her boss learned she was pregnant.

After mediation efforts failed and the case was headed to trial, the salon agreed to settle.  

In addition to the cash payment, terms of the settlement call for the salon to give the fired employee a positive job reference, develop and circulate an anti-discrimination policy, train managers how to avoid discrimination and report any sub­sequent pregnancy discrimination complaints directly to the EEOC.
