Kaiser Foundation Health Plan Inc. will pay $180,000 to a labor and delivery nurse to settle a lawsuit that claimed the woman’s promotion was rescinded after she disclosed her pregnancy, officials said Tuesday.

Margaret McIlroy was offered a promotional transfer in 2003 from Kaiser Permanente Southern California to a clinic on Maui. Two weeks before starting the job, she disclosed her pregnancy and in less than 24 hours, she was told the offer had been withdrawn, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said.
