Pregnant workers legally protected from discrimination

New York women who become pregnant may want to continue working for most of their pregnancy. While a pregnant woman may be able to perform many of her usual job tasks, she may also need some workplace accommodations. Employers are legally obligated to provide pregnant workers with reasonable accommodations and protect pregnant workers from discrimination.

Common reasons workers allege discrimination

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, retaliation claims are commonly filed against New York employers and others nationwide. In fiscal year 2016, there were 42,018 retaliation claims, which translated to 45.9 percent of all claims made during that period. Other claims that made the top 10 list for 2016 include those made based on sex, age or national origin.

5th circuit ruling may affect FLSA lawsuits

Workers and employers in New York and the rest of the nation should be aware of the effect that a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit may have on certain lawsuits concerning FLSA violations. Experts believe that the decision may make it more difficult for employers to prevail in some limited circumstances.
