From pregnancy discrimination to negative actions against parents

While great strides have been made to improve workplace conditions and increase economic opportunities for women, there continues to be discrimination. Pregnancy discrimination is one of the most common.

No Need to Sacrifice the Safety of a Mother or Baby in Order for a Pregnant Woman to Earn a Living

This powerful article published in the New York Times, "Miscarrying at Work: The Physical Toll of Pregnancy Discrimination", by Jessica Silver-Greenberg shares the stories of women who have been denied light duty during pregnancy and lost their babies.

Family responsibilities discrimination: Why is it increasing?

Conflicts between employers and employees with caregiving responsibilities show no sign of easing. Family responsibility discrimination covers complaints related to pregnancy, motherhood/fatherhood, and care of an aging or ill parent.

Pregnancy Discrimination and Working Women

Pregnancy discrimination was before the Supreme Court on December 3. University of Michigan Law Professor Sam Bagenstos argued the case of Peggy Young, a pregnant worker who was denied accommodations by UPS that were afforded to other workers with medical restrictions. The Court's decision, expected in about a month, will have profound impact on female employees in mostly lower-paid jobs involving physical labor. It will also affect Nacht Law client Jennifer Maier, who is awaiting trial on her own pregnancy discrimination claim, which was reinstated by the 6th Circuit Court in an appeal recently won by Nacht Law attorneys Nick Roumel and Ned Macey. We will be watching closely.
