May 27, 2022, 5:16 PM

Bourne’s House LLC, doing business as Bourne’s House Restaurant in Franklinton, La., will pay $30,000 to resolve a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit, according to the EEOC Friday.

The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleged the restaurant fired and then later refused to rehire a worker because she was pregnant.

Under the five-year consent decree, Bourne’s House Restaurant will conduct training, revise policies, provide regular reports to the EEOC, and post a notice that affirms its obligations under Title VII, according to the agency.
