ST. LOUIS — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed suit against a community development organization in St. Louis, saying it rescinded a job offer to a woman because she was pregnant.
The EEOC filed suit Thursday in federal court against Better Family Life, Inc., saying it offered a woman a job as an employment lead trainer, and she then told the business she was pregnant.
It maintains the job offer was rescinded days later because of the pregnancy. A phone message was left Friday with Better Family Life seeking comment. The business describes itself on its Web site as a "community development corporation dedicated to the prosperity and growth of the American family."
