EEOC Sues Restaurant in Pregnancy Case

It should go without saying–but has to be said.  It’s against the law to refuse to hire a job applicant because she is pregnant.

This time it’s a restaurant in Saginaw, Michigan that stands accused by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of denying employment to a pregnant applicant.

According to the EEOC, the applicant, who had prior experience as a food server, applied for a server position at the Crooked Creek & Creekside Bar & Grille. The first interview went well, but things went south when during her second interview she disclosed her pregnancy.

Needless to say, the EEOC was not amused and has brought suit against the restaurant, charging it with violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act as amended by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
