Pregnant waitress wins settlement from Peoria bar

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - A Peoria restaurant and bar must pay $15,000 to a former waitress who was moved from Sunday shifts because its management thought men watching football games would not want to see pregnant servers.
 
The settlement announced by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday also requires the Sandbar Mexican Grill and its owners to post notices saying employment discrimination based on race, sex or pregnancy is against federal law and to hold anti-discrimination training for its workers.
 
Owner West Sand LLC in a statement rejected any assertions of wrongdoing, saying the case was settled only to stem the "financially draining attacks" from the EEOC.
 
The EEOC sued in September 2011 on behalf of waitress Keli Kozup after she complained she was pulled from lucrative Sunday shifts because she was pregnant.
