We spoke recently about the EEOC seeking to increase visibility and attention to cases of pregnancy discrimination. This appears to be happening.
A couple of weeks ago we mentioned a federal judge who awarded a pregnant woman substantial damages after finding that her employer made offensive comments about her pregnancy, and then terminated her by certified mail while she was recovering in the hospital recovering from a Caesarean section. This case is getting wide play in blogs around the country; see Oanow.com in Alabama.
In another case, it was reported by The Fresno Bee that the EEOC just settled with a large agricultural company which had rescinded an offer of employment to a woman when it found out that she was pregnant. This settlement has been reported widely.
