A former Netflix executive says that the company fired her after she announced she was pregnant.
Variety reports that Tania Zarak, who worked as a manager in Netflix’s international originals division and filed a lawsuit against the company on Tuesday, says she was left out of meetings after announcing her pregnancy in early November 2018. She says that her boss Francisco Ramos began to ignore her in the office, make rude comments about her appearance, and even had her removed from a show she was working on.
After Zarak complained to HR, Ramos called her in to his office to ask when she would be taking maternity leave. Variety reports:
