The NBA is going to have their hands full with this lawsuit!
Brynn Cohn worked for the NBA as a senior account executive, and has filed a $3 million gender discrimination lawsuit against the league… claiming the NBA forced her and two other women with young children out of their jobs!
More specifically, they say they were were forced out because of a hostile environment toward working mothers with childcare responsibilities — something that shocked Cohn as she has worked at the NBA for the last decade. That hostile environment included the NBA changing her department's hours while she was on pregnancy leave, requiring that she and other women with caregiving responsibilities work at the office into the evenings when there was no reason for late hours!
This lead to Cohn not being able to spend thousands of extra dollars on alternative childcare. Here's what he lawyer said:
"This lawsuit lays bare the open hostility to which women with young children are consistently subjected as NBA employees. In Ms. Cohn's case, this hostility took the form of discrimination in compensation and promotion opportunities, as well as the adoption of policies at the NBA designed to push out working mothers."
Moms are the damn best, NBA! You all had moms, and we're willing to bet that most of them were the hardest working, greatest people on Earth.
Not taking care of our mothers is SHAMEFUL!
