The Center for WorkLife Law and the University of California (Hastings) has just made life a little easier for those of us practitioners who have pregnant employees or members. Their web site pulls together lots of useful information, e.g., case law decisions, advice guides, etc. and organizes it separately for those working for HR and those representing the employee. We recommend you check it out. Don’t be fooled into thinking that everyone knows their rights and obligations. Perhaps you noticed an EEOC posting recently announcing a $200,000 settlement for a small group of pregnant law enforcement officer working on the bridges of New York who were required to surrender their weapons and collect tolls once they announced they were pregnant-despite their MD’s assurances that they were capable of doing police work on the bridges.
