MIAMI – An ultrasonographer alleges she was terminated from a Broward County medical facility because of her pregnancy.
Sara McCampbell filed a complaint on May 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against North Broward Hospital District, doing business as Broward General Medical Center, alleging that the health care facility allegedly violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that shortly after she disclosed to her supervisor John Dubocq that she was pregnant, Dubocq suddenly began scrutinizing her performance and that her hours were cut. The suit states she was terminated for pretextual reasons on May 27, 2015. As a result, she claims she has experienced and will continue to experience financial and economic loss in the form of lost wages and benefits. The plaintiff holds North Broward Hospital District responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected her to adverse, discriminatory and disparate treatment, including, but not limited to, her termination because she was pregnant.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, an award of economic damages, lost wages, back pay, interest, front pay, the value and/or economic impact of lost benefits, compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorney’s fees and costs, all as permitted by law. She is represented by Jeffrey M. Goodz of Goodz & Tuschman PLLC in Plantation.
