Pregnancy Discrimination and Harassment
The Pregnancy Discrimination Act protects women from discrimination or harassment in the workplace because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy for childbirth. Even with this protection in place women still face pregnancy discrimination in the workplace. Pregnancy discrimination is more prevalent in the service sector but also appears in banks, retailers and even law firms. This article discusses what many women face after telling their employer they are pregnant. It is shocking that pregnancy discrimination is still so prevalent today.
