How we are fighting workplace abuse

Fired, just for being a mom

After Tasha had her baby, she was excited to return to work. That all changed when her boss fired her for pumping. 

Tasha came to Open Door Legal. With the help of our pro bono partners, Tasha was able to get a 6 figure settlement, a job reinstatement, and a promotion. She knows that she will never be targeted for being a mom again.
