Though pregnancy can be an intense experience, it often does not inhibit individuals' abilities to perform their work-related duties. Many women in New York and elsewhere can easily carry on working well into the later stages of pregnancy or even up until their due dates arrive. However, their abilities may be overlooked if they are treated unfairly on the job due to pregnancy discrimination.
It was recently reported that a former Netflix executive has chosen to move forward with a lawsuit after being terminated from her job due to her pregnancy. Apparently, the woman informed her boss that she was pregnant, and afterward, she was removed from projects that she had been working on. In particular, she was no longer included in meetings or emails about a series on which she acted as one of the executors.
