Suit Filed Against Estee Lauder for Discriminating Against New Fathers

August 31st, 2017

Suit Filed Against Estee Lauder for Discriminating Against New FathersFederal regulators are suing Estee Lauder for discriminating against new fathers. On Wednesday, the US Equal Employment Opportunities Commission filed the suit. The company’s parental leave policy permits new fathers two weeks of paid leave, and allows new mothers six weeks. The lawsuit states that the practice that Estee Lauder is employing violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. At Estee Lauder, nearly 85 percent of their employees are female.

Parents want to share in the experience of caring for their new infants together, so if their employer offers paid parental leave, they are more than happy to take advantage of it to spend precious time with their newborns. Unfortunately, studies found that many companies in the United States that offer paid parental leave allow new mothers more time off than fathers, which is a form of sex discrimination.
