New York Mammogram Clinic Slapped With Gender Discrimination

Gothamist is reporting on a case currently unfolding in New York Courts, where a former employee of a mammography center claims she was fired for complaining about unsanitary conditions in which she had to pump breast milk, and that she was repeatedly scolded for making such requests.

The employee alleges that following her pregnancy, she was repeatedly told that she could not pump breast milk in her office, in violation of laws ensuring new mothers can take care of their needs. The suit alleges that she was fired for her pumping and for making complaints against individuals who told her not too. Most shocking of all the allegations is that she was employed by a mammography center, primarily concerned with the breast health of women.
