If what the EEOC alleges in this lawsuit is true, then this employer is stupider than stupid-stupid.
From the EEOC’s press release:
An actual policy which requires an employee to voluntarily resign or be discharged once she is six months pregnant.
More from the EEOC press release:
“Federal law prohibits an employer from discharging a pregnant employee based on the employee’s pregnancy,” explained Nedra Campbell, trial attorney for the EEOC. “Even if an employer lets an employee work during the first six months of her pregnancy, as we found in this case, it still violates Title VII by having a blanket policy that prohibits an employee from working past her sixth month. Company policies must comport with the law.”
