Tara Tan, Standard Hotel Manager, Denied Maternity Leave, Gives Birth At Work, Lawsuit Claims


By her own account, Tara Tan was a hard worker, pulling 80 to 100 hours a week as a manager at the upscale Standard hotel in New York City's trendy Meatpacking District.

But when it came time for Tan to take time off to have her second child, she was denied maternity leave and forced to give birth to her baby -- with no doctor present -- in one of the hotel's guest rooms, the 42-year-old woman alleges in a $10 million lawsuit (via New York's Daily News).
