A 30-year-old California woman is suing her employer, Albertsons, for the death of her newborn baby.
Fox News Latino is reporting that Reyna Garcia, a general merchandise manager at the San Luis Obispo grocery store, was not allowed to take a break from heavy lifting despite multiple doctor’s notes resulting in the death of her baby.
Three doctor's notes stated that Garcia was experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, and shouldn’t lift more than 15 pounds. The lawsuit, which was filed in San Luis Obispo Superior Court, claims Albertsons denied Garcia's requests for lesser duties or a temporary switch to another department.
Garcia said she kept working while pregnant because she needed the job and health insurance.
