Yay! Article from abcnews.com about a guy who sued his employer because he didn't get a chance to take parental leave when his wife had complications after her pregnancy:
Also from the article...
" The report, called "The New Glass Ceiling: Mothers and Fathers Sue for Discrimination," outlines what it called "remarkably frank and open statements by employers reflecting the view that mothers don't belong in the workplace, and that fathers don't belong in the traditionally feminine role of family caregiver."
In one case, Nilsa Santiago-Ramos, who at one time was the only woman among four top executives of telecommunications company Centennial P.R. Wireless Corporation, alleged that her direct supervisor questioned her ability to manage work and family responsibilities, even asking how her husband managed with her not home to cook for him.
In another incident, Santiago-Ramos says her supervisor developed a job profile of employees the company should not hire. He included older persons with heavy non-work commitments, married women and women with children, she said.
Santiago-Ramos was eventually fired, and she later sued alleging sex discrimination and retaliation under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The case was settled for an undisclosed sum."
Yep. Not surprised, here. :P
