Pregnancy is not in fashion at Nicole Miller, a lawsuit charges.
A former high-level employee of the Midtown-based women’s fashion line alleges that its eponymous president took an “unsympathetic and truly reprehensible disposition” toward a pregnant staffer.
Wendy Simchi-Levi, 34, says in the suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court that she was an employee in good standing, reporting directly to Miller, until she revealed she was 20 weeks pregnant with twins in September.
During the meeting, Miller noted that Simchi-Levi had been hired in July, the suit claims.
“Oh, so you knew you were pregnant when you interviewed?” Miller asked, according to papers.
“The disdain in Ms. Miller’s voice was impossible to miss,” the suit adds.
“You won’t want to come back to work after having twins,” Miller allegedly said.
Following that conversation, Miller ostracized Simchi-Levi, even refusing to address her directly during meetings, papers claim.
“Nicole hates you,” Simchi-Levi’s co-workers allegedly told her.
