Woman is Fired After Asking For Maternity Leave

A pregnant Washington state woman said she was fired via text message from a sub shop where worked, Kameisha Denton said she was let go after asking her manager for an updated schedule. The manager at Jersey Mike's fired Kameisha through the text below.


Washington law states, "It is an unfair practice for an employer, because of pregnancy or childbirth, to: Refuse to hire or promote, terminate, or demote, a woman."

The Jersey Mike's franchise owner, Tim Trieb, told KIRO-TV. "(it) should have never ever happened…It's our policy to treat everybody equally." Trieb said the manager has since left the company.

Trieb said he offered Denton her job back, but she declined.

It looks like Denton is going to land on her feet, saying that she has received, "message after message employees wanting me to work for them...I look at it as a blessing."
