Whether you live in a warm, beachy climate or reside among subways and skyscrapers, your hometown may make up one of Tom Spiggle’s top five cities to live in if you’re working and pregnant.
Spiggle is the founder of the Spiggle Law Firm which examines pregnancy and family care discrimination in the workplace. He’s also the author of the soon-to-be-released You’re Pregnant? You’re Fired: Protecting Mothers, Fathers, and Other Caregivers in the Workplace. According to his analysis of local regulations, his ranking is as follows:
1) New York City
2) San Francisco
Discrimination against pregnant workers has been a hot topic lately. Maybe you’ve heard horror stories such as these: one woman’s maternity leave will end (that’s right, end) over a month before her baby is due–she has since filed a lawsuit against her company. Other women have been denied health accommodations, as in the case of Heather Myers, whose supervisor did not allow her to keep a water bottle accessible while working during her pregnancy–she, too, sued her employer. Spiggle noted this issue–as quoted in his report, he states, “‘Courts have held that employers don’t have to make minor accommodations at work—like allowing women to carry a water bottle to stay hydrated—to allow pregnant women to keep working. Fortunately, a lot of states and cities are stepping up to fill the gap.’”
Read Spiggle’s full report here, and learn more about maternity and paternity leave so that you’ll be prepared when your time comes!
Back in the office? Here are some tips on how to balance work and breastfeeding.
