Martinez-Burgos v. Guayama Corp., No. 10-1372 (1st Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff worked for a temporary staffing agency and, on assignment to a pharmaceutical company, was cited and reprimanded for noncompliance with company rules several times. When she applied for a permanent position with the company she was seven months pregnant. She did not get the job and was not reassigned to the company. The district court rejected her claim of Title VII pregnancy discrimination on summary judgment and the First Circuit affirmed. The record demonstrated that plaintiff was not qualified for the position and that the company had a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for its actions.
