New Study Reveals Promising Strategies to Help Job Applicants Avoid Pregnancy Discrimination

January 8th, 2014
avoid pregnancy discrimination

A new study featured in a recent issue of the Journal of Applied Psychology suggests that women can possibly avoid pregnancy discrimination when applying for a job by being first to address common negative stereotypes.  The study, funded by Rice University, included 161 retailers in three urban malls who were currently advertising for help wanted.  Applicants, onlookers, and private appraisers involved in the study process concluded that pregnant job applicants that were first to address negative stereotypes commonly held by employers were three times less likely to experience discrimination.

The study was initiated to identify strategies that pregnant job applicants could employ to better their chances of being hired.  Research has shown that pregnancy discrimination often occurs in the application process because employers commonly believe that pregnant women will have inflexible schedules, need accommodations in their jobs, will lack commitment, or be incompetent.  Pregnant women who addressed these stereotypes in their initial application process had a much more positive experience than those who did not address them.
