Supreme Court rules on pregnancy discrimination claim

The U.S. Supreme Court has finally ruled on the UPS pregnancy discrimination case that we have discussed in previous blog posts. As our readers may remember, the case was filed after a pregnant UPS driver was advised by her physician to avoid lifting packages weighing above a certain limit. Rather than reasonably accommodate the physician’s request, UPS insisted that the pregnant woman take unpaid leave. UPS made this decision despite the fact that the company regularly accommodates workers who have other physical conditions which limit their abilities.

In California, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing oversees employment discrimination complaints.

But how does the investigation work? And what type of evidence does the DFEH consider when reviewing a complaint?

The media has been buzzing lately about a high-profile gender discrimination case with roots in the halls of a prominent venture capital firm.

However, the reason why this particular case is vitally important is that the most pressing aspects of the case include issues which could occur in any workplace across the nation.
