Taco Bell reached out to the owner of the California franchise.

In a statement, they affirmed that «the safety and well-being of the team is a priority.»

María, the affected employee, spoke with Telemundo about her situation.

«Since I reported my pregnancy, they reduced me from five days of 7.5 hours to two days of 5 hours,» she declared.

She took legal action in the California civil department for discrimination.

María insists she can work without issues during her pregnancy.
