Pregnancy Discrimination Class Action Lawsuit Dismissed

A New York Judge has dismissed a class action lawsuit against a company founded by former NYC mayor, Michael Bloomberg. The lawsuit was filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and alleged that the company, Bloomberg L.P., “systematically reduced the pay, demoted or excluded from meetings mothers and pregnant women.” [Source]

The judge agreed that there were a few instances of actual discrimination but no proof that it was systemwide. The dismissal does not protect the company from further lawsuits filed by individuals.
