Union Home Mortgage (UHM) is facing a sex discrimination lawsuit from a former female employee who claims she was wrongfully terminated when she was pregnant. UHM has denied the claims, asserting that the firing was part of a broader reorganization effort that involved terminating many other long-term employees, regardless of gender, maternity or otherwise.

The plaintiff worked at UHM for seven years before being terminated in early 2020. She alleges that UHM administrators expressed extreme disapproval with her pregnancy and ultimately made the decision to fire her. She further claims that the decision to terminate her was unlawful and represented a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

UHM’s legal team has denied all accusations of gender discrimination and states that the reorganization effort was necessary to ensure the company would remain viable during a financially uncertain time. Key points emphasizing UHM’s position include:

• UHM was facing significant financial constraints that required job eliminations
• UHM made an effort to terminate employees from across the company in a fair and equitable manner
• UHM strongly denied any gender discrimination towards the plaintiff
• UHM confirmed that the fired employees were part of a long-term reorganization effort
