Avoiding Pregnancy Discrimination

By Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage PEO and Camille Cooper, Assistant General Counsel and HR Consultant for Engage PEO.  As published in Workforce Magazine

News broke earlier this year that Walmart was facing a potential class-action lawsuit in New York for allegations of pregnancy discrimination.

Employers are facing increased exposure and liability for pregnancy discrimination claims.
