Orlando-based Hilton Grand Vacations has agreed to settle an EEOC pregnancy discrimination lawsuit in which a former employee claimed the company asked her to resign during a difficult pregnancy in return for a promise to rehire her after her child was born.

When she was repeatedly passed over for openings following her child’s birth, she sued, alleging pregnancy and sex discrimination.

Under the agreement, the employer will pay the former employee $25,000 and agree to three years of EEOC monitoring. Additionally, supervisors will be trained about sex and pregnancy discrimination.

Note: Employers may not treat pregnancy differently than any other medical condition. Anytime an employer asks a pregnant employee to resign, that’s a red flag certain to attract the EEOC’s attention.
