Pregnancy discrimination claims have skyrocketed to 5,587 charges filed with the EEOC -- up 4,901 in just one year. And the numbers just keep piling up:

  • The state Department of Correctional Services of New York was just ordered to pay $972,000 in damages to 23 correction officers who had accused the state of pregnancy discrimination.
  • A jury recently awarded $720,000 in damages to an associate and paralegal who claimed they were forced out of their New York law firm because of their pregnancies.
  • Five female Detroit police officers have filed a federal lawsuit against the city, alleging the department discriminated against them by refusing to place them on light duty when they were pregnant.

It's time to re-examine your organization's pregnancy policies to avoid becoming a statistic. Learn how by participating in the back-by-popular-demand audio conference, Managing Pregnant Employees: Avoid ADA, FMLA, and PDA Traps.

The law isn't always as simple as black and white. This interactive audio conference will guide you through the shades of gray, including:

  • What employees are protected under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act? Protected workers are not always pregnant! Just this August, a three-judge panel for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals found women who need time off work for infertility treatments (an unpredictable and time-consuming process) may invoke the PDA as potential protection against adverse action from employers.
  • New considerations you need to consider when training your supervisors and managers how to avoid pregnancy discrimination claims
  • The complex interplay between the PDA, FMLA, ADA, and other key laws
  • The critical must-know directives from the EEOC’s guidelines on family rights discrimination
  • Practical, hands-on advice for managing pregnant employees
  • The specific accommodations you should and should NOT make for pregnant employees
  • Real-life examples of recent cases dealing with pregnancy in the workplace

Managing Pregnant Employees: Avoid ADA, FMLA, and PDA Traps is just $227.
