Pittsburgh-based PNC Financial Services Group was cited twice last month: First by Working Mother magazine as one of the top 100 places for women to work, and then by the EEOC as a place whereis rife.
Working Mother praised PNC as an employer sensitive to the needs of new mothers. Those women are given 13 weeks off with pay if they have been with the company for 10 years. And when the mothers return to work, they have access to lactation rooms stocked with breast pumps, refrigerators and comfortable chairs.
Meanwhile, the EEOC filed a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against PNC, claiming that a longtime temporary teller was denied a full-time position after being interviewed while six months pregnant. The suit alleges that PNC hired a less qualified applicant because the competing applicant was pregnant.
