Pregnancy discrimination is illegal in every state in the union, yet it is thriving in workplaces all across the country. Many companies treat pregnancy as an inconvenience that costs them time and money. Too often, employers fire women when they become pregnant, or deceive them into resigning by misrepresenting the law, refuse to accommodate their pregnancy-related needs, deny them leave or benefits, or just give them a hard time.
Join us for this very important teleclass, facilitated by Jack Tuckner, women’s rights expert and advocate, and author of Women’s Rights in the Workplace: A Guide to Pregnancy Discrimination. Jack will walk us through:
- Recognizing and defining pregnancy discrimination
- Knowing your maternity leave rights
- Reasonable accommodations
- What to do in the event of discrimination
