Nursing mothers face workplace harassment, discrimination

Despite the existence of laws like the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, lactating women continue to face discrimination on the job in Texas and across the country. One Delaware woman recently won a $1.5 million jury verdict after she was subjected to harassment and degradation in the workplace while nursing, causing her to stop pumping and eventually lose her milk supply. Despite the success of such cases, however, nursing mothers continue to face major problems on the job.

Employee claims retaliation after a harassment charge

It isn't uncommon for employers in Texas and other states to have men in positions of power. For one woman at Ernst & Young, it was no big deal to know that this was the case with her employer as well. However, she soon found out why women were rarely promoted to leadership positions. It was because females were isolated and otherwise discriminated against because of their gender.
