Partner Carrie Hoffman Comments on UPS Driver Pregnancy Discrimination Suit

07.01.14

Law360 spoke with Partner Carrie B. Hoffman, head of the Firm's Labor and Employment practice, about the recent U.S. Supreme Court agreement to review and clarify a former UPS Inc. driver's pregnancy discrimination suit that could impact the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidance on the issue. "There is potential that this future ruling will conflict with the EEOC's guidance, when published, on these issues," Ms. Hoffman said. "This will further complicate how employers deal with the pregnancy and accommodation issues."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".
