UPI News Service, 11/15/2012 

A former manager for a New York hotel has filed a lawsuit alleging she was fired after giving birth in one of the business' rooms.

Tara Tan, a former manager at the Standard Hotel, said her problems at the accommodation began after she gave birth to her second child in a hotel room while she was working, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Tan said she returned to work three days after the birth and was told she would be docked pay for the time she missed. She said she soon found herself being stripped of responsibilities and was falsely accused of stealing boxes.

Tan said a superior fired her, saying she didn't fit into the "culture of the hotel."

The lawsuit alleges the superior meant "that she did not possess the physical attributes to work at the hotel because at over 40 years of age and having recently given birth to two children she was, so far as defendants were concerned, not young, thin of model-like proportions, or one of 'the beautiful people' desired at the hotel."

The discrimination lawsuit is seeking $10 million in damages.

A representative for the hotel declined to comment on the lawsuit.
