ELKHART, Ind. – A local woman announced she would sue AT&T after she was fired because of the company’s strict attendance policies.

Katia Hills got pregnant in October 2014. She said she missed work because of her health and doctor’s appointments.

At&t’s policies on attendance provided Hills with demerits with led to her termination.

Hills thought she was protected by the Family Medical Leave act.

"I guess i was confident that anything that was pregnancy related would be covered" Hills said.

This is not the first case the company has been sought for. A woman in New York also filed a federal lawsuit against the corporation.
