Women continue to face pregnancy discrimination at work

Female employees at some of the largest corporations in Long Island and across the country continue to suffer from pregnancy discrimination on the job. A number of reports have highlighted that large corporations continue to discriminate against women who are pregnant or have recently given birth through denying them promotions, directing them to less lucrative positions or even terminating their positions. Despite the fact that many of these companies have in-house legal counsel to advise them about the illegality of workplace discrimination, studies indicate that the practices continue.

The persistence of the gender pay gap

Some women employees in Long Island may be paid less than their male coworkers for doing the same job. Despite the signing of the Equal Pay Act on June 10, 1963, women still do not make the same amount of money as men. Equal Pay Day recognizes this with a celebration on April 10. This is the amount of time a woman has to work into the new year to make as much money as a man does during the year.

Work a split shift? You might deserve more pay.

Hourly wage earners in New York work hard, and many of them work split shifts. Under a special state law, some of these workers may be eligible for an extra hour’s pay, even if they aren’t working overtime. Whether you’re in this situation depends on a few factors, but if you are, your employer should pay you more.
