Pier 1 Imports Sued Over Policy With Pregnant Worker
A class-action lawsuit targeting Pier 1 Imports was filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court last week after a woman claimed the company forced her to take unpaid leave because of her pregnancy. The suit states the company's policy toward expectant mothers is unfair and illegal. The woman at the center of the lawsuit, Erin Caselman, works as a sales associate at a San Jose, Calif. Pier 1 Imports store. "All I want is my job back," said Caselman. "I want to be able to work during my pregnancy."
