“Nasty Gal is a horrible place to work for professional women who become pregnant,” a lawsuit claims. The lawsuit is accusing the company of illegally firing four pregnant women. The suit, filed by ex-employee Aimee Concepcion, says Nasty Gal terminated her and three other women, as well as one man about to take paternity leave, reports Jezebel
Sophia Amoruso, the founder and former CEO of Nasty Gal, released a best selling book, #GIRLBOSS, a combination memoir and motivational business how-to, but her eight-year-old company Nasty Gal suffered from slowing growth and laid off 10% of it’s workplace.
Amoruso stepped down Jan. 2015 as CEO of the fashion site. The company’s president and chief product officer, Sheree Waterson, was hired by Amoruso February 2014 to take over the position and join its board. Amorous still remains involved in Nasty Gal’s daily operations as executive chairman, overseeing its creative and brand marketing.
