Speaking at HR Specialist’s 11th annual Labor & Employment Law Advanced Practices (LEAP) Symposium in Las Vegas earlier this month, EEOC General Counsel David Lopez said many employers seem to have an unusual workplace discrimination blind-spot.
“The vast majority of employers are trying to do the right thing—but not all,” Lopez said. “There are some employers who are cutting corners, banking on the fact that employees won’t complain out of fear … and the area where I see the most overt discrimination in the workplace is pregnancy. It seems that employers just don’t get it.”
