Supreme Court to hear pregnancy discrimination employment case

In a pregnancy discrimination case scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court on December 3, Young v. United Parcel Service could resolve a circuit split regarding what accommodations a pregnant employee must be given. While some circuits are willing to find discrimination wherever a pregnant employee is denied accommodations similar to those that would be available to an employee who is injured on the job, most circuits only require an employer to treat a pregnant employee the same as a non-pregnant employee - effectively denying special accommodations.

Protecting temporary workers

One of the defining characteristics of the most recent recession has been the stagnancy of wages, including amongst temporary workers. Jobs are scarce and the ones that do exist are low paying with little opportunity for growth. A glaring example of this can be found in the frequency with which large corporations are turning to temporary workers and staffing agencies to fill their labor needs. In doing so, corporations are able to pay low wages for demanding work while also attempting to avoid liability for violations of workplace law. (Notably, temporary and staffing agencies often have joint employer liability with the company using the labor). Employee rights, it would seem, are once again ignored, circumvented, and dismissed in favor of corporate profits.

The fight against transgender discrimination in the workplace

There is so much ignorance and unfounded bias surrounding transgender discrimination that even experienced employment law attorneys may shy away from these cases.
