The U.S. Supreme Court is weighing how much employers must do to accommodate pregnant workers under a federal law aimed at combating discrimination against them.
Peggy Young only has to look at her younger daughter to be reminded how long she has fought United Parcel Service over its treatment of pregnant employees, and why.
The number of pregnancy discrimination charges filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission declined nationally between 2010 and 2013.
A Maryland woman whose pregnancy discrimination case will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court is getting support from the American Civil Liberties Union.
Recent enforcement guidance on the Pregnancy Discrimination Act represents the EEOC’s first effort to substantially update its position on this prohibited form of discrimination since 1983.
The slow economy and competitive labor market may be contributing to the upswing in discrimination claims by pregnant women in the workplace, employment attorneys say.
