Woman says Verizon fired her for taking off work after her babies died
New Jersey resident Marybeth Walz, who had worked as an executive at Bedminster, New Jersey-based Verizon Wireless for 17 years, has recently filed a lawsuit against the telecommunications company in Massachusetts, claiming that the company denied to give her maternity leave payment, and then terminated her employment contract after she took extra days off from work after her twins – who were brought to the world via a surrogate mother – both died shortly after birth.
Walz said she delayed having children due to her work at Verizon and was later unable to have children after she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She is alleging that Verizon has discriminated against her on the basis of sex, pregnancy, and disability.
