Pregnancy Discrimination: Top Employment Actions That Could Land You In Legal Hot Water and How To Avoid Them

Description:

Pregnancy discrimination can be subtle, even unintentional. Or it can be blatant, as in the case of a Chipotle employee in Washington, D.C., who claimed that her employer restricted her water and bathroom breaks and terminated her due to her pregnancy. (A jury agreed and awarded her $550,000 in compensatory and punitive damages in 2016.)

Regardless of your motives, or lack of them, your organization can be held liable for costly (and embarrassing) damages if there’s evidence of discrimination against one or more pregnant employees.

Join us for a webinar on the ins and outs of pregnancy discrimination, including which federal laws guard against it, what you can and can’t do when an employee reveals her pregnancy, your obligations to accommodate pregnant employees, and how to avoid subtle forms of discrimination that could spark legal trouble.

You’ll learn:

  • The federal laws that cover pregnancy discrimination, and how they apply to you
  • What pregnancy discrimination is—and isn’t—under federal law
  • What you can and can’t say when a job applicant reveals she is pregnant
  • What you need to know when a pregnant employee is being considered for a promotion
  • How and when you may have to accommodate a pregnant employee with physical limitations
  • The best way to avoid pregnancy discrimination-related claims against your organization
  • What your employees are entitled to when it comes to maternity leave
  • And much more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
