A Tulsa woman is suing her employer, the United States Postal Service. In her lawsuit, Robin Jones claims the USPS broke federal law by failing to accommodate her high-risk pregnancy.
Jones works as a custodian at the downtown Tulsa post office. Back in 2014, when she was pregnant with her daughter, the job was especially grueling.
“Cleaning, mopping, sweeping, pushing, pulling heavy stuff,” Jones explained. “Working with chemicals, stuff like that.”
Additionally, Jones was a high-risk pregnancy because her first child had been born premature years before.
