An Asian restaurant in Bartlett, Tenn., is facing a U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) lawsuit after it fired two employees it believed were too big (due to their pregnancies) to wait tables. The EEOC also alleged that the restaurant failed to post and keep posted the notice of non-discrimination rights as required by federal law. (EEOC v. Noodles Asian Bistro, Inc.)

The lesson: Not only can women work while pregnant, they have a right to do so.
