U.S. Supreme Court Revives Pregnancy Discrimination Case

Don't forget to visit The Workplace Report blog, also authored by Ancel Glink attorneys, for up-to-date reports on labor and employment legal issues.
In Friday's post, our attorneys covered the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Young v. United Parcel Service.  In a 6-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Young, a female delivery driver in a pregnancy discrimination case.  Young argued that UPS discriminated against her when it refused to lighten her work duties while she was pregnant. The Supreme Court sent the case back to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to determine whether a genuine issue of material fact exists as to whether UPS’ reasons for having treated Young less favorably than it treated other non-pregnant employees were pretextual.
