CONCORD, N.C. — A Chick-fil-A in Concord will pay $10,000 to a woman who says the restaurant didn’t hire her because she was pregnant.

According to WSOC, the woman claimed that during an interview she answered several questions related to her pregnancy, even though she thought they were “inappropriate.”

She says the owner called her back three days later, told her she wouldn’t be hired and that she should call back after she’d had the baby and had child care in place.

The money will settle a lawsuit she filed last July.
