A female airplane mechanic who alleged she was fired after she revealed her pregnancy to her employer will receive $60,000 in damages. Sierra Academy of Aeronautics, located near Merced, Ca., agreed to a seven-year consent decree, but admitted no liability.

Under the agreement, the flight-training school will reinstate the mechanic, hire a full-time HR manager to oversee all equal employment opportunity processes, review and revise the company’s anti-discrimination policies and procedures and provide training for all employees on laws enforced by EEOC. 

The agreement also requires the company to maintain a system to track and monitor discrimination complaints, about which the school must immediately notify the EEOC.
