Seems like our naming of “The Great Texas Lactation Case” has gone viral. The August 23rd edition of “Workforce” devoted an article to the EEOC v. Houston Funding lawsuit, which it says “has been dubbed ‘The Great Texas Lactation Case.’" Thanks!
On June 4th we reported that it “[s]eems like the “Great Texas Lactation Case” is the significant case that we had previously predicted. Blog of February 9, 2012. In that case, we noted that “the EEOC is seeking to reverse a Texas judge’s decision which denied the Title VII claim of a woman who alleged that she was fired for seeking to pump breast milk while on the job. He famously (notoriously?) said that "Lactation is not pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition." The EEOC argues that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Title VII protect women from being fired for lactation and breast pumping.”
Seems like we have folks all over reading our blog!
