Unlawful Discrimination Against Pregnant Workers and Workers with Caregiving Responsibilities

Although pregnancy discrimination has been illegal for decades, many women continue to be fired after they inform their employers that they are pregnant.


Legal Aid Senior Staff Attorney Sharon Terman recently testified on this issue at a public hearing held by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Washington, D.C. Terman was one of 15 experts who told the Commission that discrimination against pregnant women and workers with caregiving responsibilities remains a significant problem.
