Fighting Back Against Pregnancy Discrimination

May 30th, 2018
pregnant woman facing pregnancy discrimination

Pregnancy and the impending birth of a child should be a joyful time for a woman and her family. However, when she shares the news at work, she may be treated in a way that she had not expected. Having advanced degrees and a prestigious position may not help with job security, as a top doctor at a Philadelphia hospital recently discovered.

Before the woman announced her pregnancy, she held a significant director’s role at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and she was an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. Once she announced her pregnancy, everything changed. She claims that she then began to experience an increasingly hostile, even vicious work environment where her superior demeaned her, publicly ridiculed her, and eventually demoted her.

The woman was placed on administrative leave, which she claims caused major damage to her reputation locally and nationally. She was eventually forced to resign. Although she is now employed elsewhere, the experience may have caused irreparable harm to her career.
