ST. LOUIS (AP) — The National Women's Law Center in Washington has filed an administrative complaint claiming a suburban St. Louis chiropractic college discriminated against a pregnant woman by failing to excuse her pregnancy-related absences or allow missed work to be made up.
The complaint was filed Wednesday with the U.S. Department of Education against Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs on behalf of Brandi Kostal, a pregnant graduate student. It alleges violation of Title IX, a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
Kostal had complications that required a Caesarean section this spring, resulting in missed classes and assignments.
The complaint says she told the dean of student services, but was still penalized with failing grades in two classes.
Messages left with a Logan spokesman were not immediately returned.
