MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A woman let go by a West Virginia mining company has filed a federal lawsuit claiming she lost her job to a man because of her gender and pregnancy.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1PO4V2J ) reports that Alyssa Moate Larry filed the suit against Marion County Coal Co. The subsidiary of Murray Energy operates the Loveridge Mine.

In her civil action, Larry says after she gave birth in February, she returned to work but was not provided an appropriate location to pump breast milk. Later, her suit claims she was laid off and a man ultimately took over her duties.

Larry says she was told her position was being eliminated.

In response, Marion County Coal Co. denied many of the allegations.
