You may think pregnancy discrimination is rare. And you’d be wrong. The number of pregnancy discrimination claims filed with the EEOC has increased steadily over the last two decades, and is currently “hovering near an all-time high.”
Meanwhile, the increase in pregnancy discrimination has disproportionately impacted women of color.
The actions that lead to claims are varied. They including employees getting passed over for promotions, raises, physically demanding jobs, or risky assignments, being terminated; not being hired — all because the employee is pregnant.
Join Ann Boehm for this 90-minute training, where she will explain the purpose and coverage of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, discuss the cross-roads between FMLA and PPL, caregiver discrimination, and accommodation issues.
