EEOC Releases New Documents Regarding Pay, Pregnancy
In addition to OFCCP’s release this week of its updated Sex Discrimination Rule, to coincide with White House’s United State of Women Summit in Washington, D.C., the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released three new resource documents dealing with equal pay and pregnancy discrimination.
The three documents released are:
- Equal Pay and the EEOC’s Proposal to Collect Pay Data, a summary of the federal government’s new pay data proposal;
- Legal Rights for Pregnant Workers under Federal Law; and
- Helping Patients Deal with Pregnancy-Related Conditions and Restrictions at Work.
The documents are not specific to federal contractors, but they nevertheless apply to many federal contractors. We should expect the documents to be referenced by enforcement officials at both the EEOC and OFCCP as these topics continue to be at the forefront of workplace discrimination law.
