PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A federal judge has ordered a Portland company to pay a woman $80,000 for lost wages and damages for rescinding a job offer after learning she was pregnant.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports under a Friday consent decree signed by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon, Scribe X also must adopt written non-discriminatory guidelines, train its employees on them and make them visible on job applications.
The company must pay Brittany Frisby $25,000 for lost wages and $55,000 for damages, alter its records to show Frisby voluntarily resigned from a medical scribe job and is eligible to be rehired and provide her with a positive reference if needed.
The judge's order came after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a federal pregnancy discrimination complaint against the company on Frisby's behalf.
Although Scribe-X agreed to abide by the conditions, the company denies it engaged in discrimination.
