WeWork’s ex-CEO Adam Neumann accused of gender discrimination

WeWork’s ousted CEO, Adam Neumann, has been slapped with a pregnancy and gender-discrimination suit. Neumann’s chief of staff at WeWork, Medina Bardhi, claims in a lawsuit that she was harassed and demoted after she told Neumann of her first pregnancy. Bardhi also alleges she was replaced by a less-qualified male employee after going on maternity leave following the birth of her second child.

This is a load of shit. I've worked in the field of FMLA, Disability and Worker's Compensation for years. Every big employer has a giant HR department that handles termination approval. You can't fire somebody for being pregnant but being pregnant doesn't protect you from being fired.
