The EEOC has filed pregnancy discrimination charges against Orlando-based Hilton Grand Vacations after the company failed to rehire a worker who resigned to deal with pregnancy-related health problems.
The employee worked as a recruiter at the Orlando office until taking leave due to her pregnancy.
According to the EEOC lawsuit, Hilton continually promised to rehire her, but consistently passed her over for openings she claims she was qualified to fill. The EEOC maintains Hilton filled the positions with less-qualified candidates.
