Just a short posting today, apropos of yesterday’s post from Australia, in wbich we wrote about surveys finding that in the workplace there were “[pregnant] women who were asked to make a choice – the job or the baby.”
We want to underscore for employers in the US the EEOC’s resolve to go after pregnancy discrimination cases.
A new such case was filed by the EEOC accusing a Michigan bar and grille of refusing to hire an applicant for a server position when she disclosed that she was pregnant.
The EEOC said, yet again, that “Women should not be forced to remove themselves from the labor market simply because they are pregnant. The EEOC will vigorously enforce a pregnant woman’s right to be fairly considered for a job.”
