Gaby was a woman in her early thirties working at an insurance company for the last two years. The company had about 95 employees and the company was paying Gaby K a year. The department in which Gaby worked was mainly men, most of which did not have families or were divorced. Gaby kept to herself at work as the men would often banter amongst one another, making sexist jokes and sharing stories about women they had sexual relations with. At times the men would exclude her, as they were irritated by the fact that she was one of the top agents at the company. At home, Gaby and her husband had been planning out a future that involved having more children so Gaby was three months pregnant but was still able to hide it from her co-workers. In her fourth month, Gaby began to show more and her male co-workers noticed. They began harassing her making jokes about her weight and how women that are pregnant have memory loss. Gaby went to her boss to tell him to expect her to be out of work on pregnancy leave when the baby came. He seemed annoyed and asked many questions about how log she would be out for and why she did not tell him immediately. At the end of the conversation, she told him that she was having issues with her male co-workers harassing her about being pregnant. He told her to ignore it and continue working. When Gaby had to come late to work for an ultra sound, her boss yelled at her in front of the entire office calling her stupid and telling her that her pregnancy was not an excuse to be lazy. Mortified, Gabby called her husband crying and told him what had happened. He told her to report everything that had happened to HR. After she did, a few days went by and her boss told her that she was being let go for missing work and that she was no longer a good fit at the agency. Gaby knew that she was being singled out based on the fact that she was pregnant and decided to take legal action. She contacted discrimination lawyers in San Bernardino and they were able to discuss the possibility of taking her case since she was being discriminated, harassed, and wrongfully terminated for being pregnant.
