Former associate swim coach April Jensen is alleging gender and pregnancy discrimination, as well as retaliation.

According to the suit, as reported by ABC 57 News, before she went on maternity leave, her supervisor ignored her during meets, made judgmental comments about her maternity plan and criticized her work.

Jensen reported the treatment to university officials and was later fired.

Jensen also alleges she was paid about $20,000 less than a male associate head coach even though they worked the same number of hours, recruited players and coached the same number of athletes.

The University has not issued a comment about the suit.
