Even though the Pregnancy Discrimination Act was passed in 1978, discrimination due to pregnancy is still a big problem in the United States. In 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received 3,486 charges of pregnancy discrimination, resulting in monetary rewards of $15.5 million. You may be wondering what the Pregnancy Discrimination Act is and what your rights are as an employee if you or someone you care about becomes pregnant, gives birth, or has a pregnancy-related condition. This course will help answer those questions. We'll talk about hiring, firing, promotion, and benefits. We'll also discuss accommodations, leaves of absence, and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
