PROPOSED SEX DISCRIMINATION RULE: COMMENT PERIOD DEADLINE

The comment period for the proposed sex discrimination rule ends today, April 14, 2015. The original March 31st deadline was extended, due to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Young v. United Parcel Service. On March 25th, the U.S. Supreme Court remanded the case back to the Fourth Circuit and ruled that the court must “…consider the extent to which an employer’s policy treats pregnant workers less favorably than it treats nonpregnant workers similar in their ability or inability to work.” (Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit) For more information on this case, please read Art Gutman’s blog,“Supreme Court Ruling in Young v. UPS: A Major Victory for Pregnant Employees.”
