Teacher Lost Job at Pennsylvania Catholic School Due to Pregnancy

December 5th, 2018
pregnant woman facing pregnancy discrimination

Teacher Lost Job at Pennsylvania Catholic School Due to PregnancyA teacher lost her job at a Catholic school in Pennsylvania due to her pregnancy. The woman who taught at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School in Edgewood, Pennsylvania, for four years informed her employer about the impending pregnancy on Friday. After the announcement, they fired her. She claims that she lost her job at the Catholic school because she is not married to her longtime boyfriend, and they have no plans to wed. According to the former teacher and the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Diocese website, “immorality” is cited as a cause for dismissal from a job within the diocese.

Pregnancy discrimination occurs in a variety of industries, but is illegal in the state. It is considered a form of sex discrimination, and pregnancy itself is classified as a temporary disability. Other types of pregnancy discrimination beyond wrongful termination include being passed over or not hired for a position at a business or an employer taking disciplinary action against the employee due to absences for prenatal medical treatment or appointments.
