If you think women aren't still getting fired just for being pregnant, think again. And EEOC will show up if you do.

EEOC sues Walmart for pregnancy discrimination. One key recent advance in civil rights law (in which EEOC played a major role) is that pregnant workers must get the same light duty accommodations as others. Employers--take note!

I had a wonderful meeting with Gunilla Carlsson, Deputy Executive Director, Management and Governance, UNAIDS and Jason Sigurdson who is joining her at UNAIDS. Thanks to Jill Gay for making the connection. We talked about how to really stop workplace harassment.

Jackson's Food settles EEOC disability case, hires Nathanial Prugh, who is deaf, & pays him $88k. Prugh had been selected for an interview based on his qualifications--an offer that got pulled when he needed an interpreter. Let my people work.

EEOC sues MedStar in DC for disability discrimination. The allegations concern an employee w/a knee injury who was not reassigned to jobs she could have done. Staying on the job is critical for people w/disabilities. The ADA is designed to help.

This case is a reminder of how some reasonable accommodations are easy to provide (like parking spaces for employees w/disabilities) and what happens when employers yank them away. (Tip: EEOC will show up.) Cloveland Farms settles case for $75k.

EEOC sues On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina for some really outrageous harassment against an African-American employee. This is why we need to be so vigilant against racial harassment.

Assoc GC Jolene Wall from has some useful ideas about how to work well across business divisions. I spend a lot of time talking to HR, GC, Compliance, EEO and D&I folks. Cross functional work is key.

EEOC sues Del Taco for sexual harassment. When young women (as young as teenagers) get sexually harassed, it is a horrible way to start off one's work career.

Unions have a responsibility to advocate for their members who experience discrimination on protected bases. Glad to see that Teamsters Local Union #455 settled w/EEOC in conciliation on this charge.
