Sodexo Laundry Services and the EEOC have settled a lawsuit over pregnancy discrimination for $80,000. The EEOC alleged that a Haitian linen room attendant who asked for an alternative assignment when she developed pregnancy complications was instead fired.

Hispanic employees of Sodexo, a national corporation with a large Florida presence, allegedly got better assignments than Haitian workers.

Final note:
Remember, preferential treatment for one protected group is another protected group’s discrimination claim.
