Wyomissing, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/26/2019 -- In the recent Business Weekly March 2019 cover story, "Mother's Load," Jeffrey Elliot, a Philadelphia business attorney from the Law Offices of Kozloff Stoudt Attorneys, was featured as a business law expert on the matter of workplace discrimination.
The article details the experience of a 24 year old female who feared for her recent employment after discovering that she was pregnant. When asked about women and workplace discrimination, Attorney Elliott was quoted saying, "I think women are still plagued in America's workplaces with hesitation in revealing pregnancy status. Once it's out of your mouth, the law steps up and protects you, (but) the problem with the law is, there's no protracted postpartum social aspect to the protections."
The article's primary objective was addressing female workplace discrimination and maternity leave, and even though over forty years have passed since the establishment of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, these issues in the workplace occur on a regular basis. For Attorney Elliott, the business lawyer in Philadelphia, it's recommended that women take a proactive approach with their pregnancy and career by making their employer aware of their pregnancy as soon as possible, and stay in contact with the company during time off.
Attorney Jeffrey Elliott also encourages women to reach out to a professional for legal advice if they are unsure about the protections they're afforded when working while pregnant.
