Jennifer Rodriguez is a 21-year-old woman who was looking forward to a position she had landed at a Denver-based personal law injury firm. She had finished with the interview and everything went smoothly.
What is even better is the fact that she got the job but it didn’t last very long. 10 days after she got hired she was fired by the law firm for a reason she couldn’t have anticipated.
Jennifer claims that the attorney who interviewed her initially accused her of ‘hiding’ the fact that she was pregnant during the interview process. Jennifer was eight months pregnant at the time and she was certainly showing a baby bump.
Since she was terminated from her job, she was left with no source of income. When she demanded an explanation she was told the following:
“[H]e told me because I was dishonest with not revealing I was pregnant within my first interview or my second interview,” she told CBS.
She claims that she was also asked by employees of the law firm if she was acting as a surrogate or if she was “keeping the baby.” In addition, the law firm asked if she should suffer from any pregnancy complications if she would be keeping the baby.
Jennifer was so angry by the decision to fire her from her job that she hired her own attorney and fought back. You can see more in this video:
