Legal Win

  • Carol Robles-Roman, Legal Momentum's president and CEO, said, "The company now has a policy that expressly entitles nursing employees to an accommodation. We intend to work with other employers who operate in non-traditional work settings to help them follow Vamco's lead."
  • While it is certainly the prerogative of a small business to fire at-will employees for just about any non-discriminatory reason, firing circumstances that seem fishy are likely to raise red flags for a future lawsuit. The EEOC and women's rights nonprofit Legal Momentum alleged that Vamco fired female sheetmetal workers for "pretextual reasons"—some within days of starting.
