Pregnant workers? Let them work

by on
in Human Resources,Maternity Leave Laws

A restaurant manager apparently thought he was looking out for the best interests of pregnant employees and their fetuses when he told them to stop working in their last trimester. Not so fast, said the U.S. Equal Employ­ment Opportunity Commission, which filed a lawsuit on the two workers’ be­­half.

The manager admitted to EEOC in­­ves­ti­ga­tors that he asked the women to resign. Note: The pregnant woman, not the em­­­ployer, decides when to call it quits.
