A poorly timed layoff has cost an Arlington hotel owner $20,000. Arlington Host Corp., which formerly owned and operated the BallPark Inn in Arlington, settled a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit brought by the EEOC on behalf of a front-desk clerk who was pregnant when she lost her job.

Arlington Host agreed to pay $20,000 to Heidi Guevara, who charged that she was targeted because of her pregnancy.

According to EEOC attorney Tisha Dominguez, “Although the defendant in this case denies having discriminated, all employers need to know that if a layoff is necessary, it is illegal to select a pregnant employee for layoff just because she will soon be needing maternity leave.”
