Carrie Hoffman Comments on the 5th Circuit's Breast-Pumping Discrimination Ruling

06 June 2013 News

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the district court's finding that a new mother could be fired from her job for pumping breast milk during work hours because it did not meet the standard for sexual discrimination. Androvett NewsWire spoke with Gardere Labor and Employment Partner Carrie B. Hoffman about this decision.

"This decision is a strong indication of the general opinion on this issue, and certainly bolsters the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's view that addressing pregnancy-related discrimination should be a national priority," Ms. Hoffman said.
