Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • It is a simple fact: pregnancy discrimination still runs rampant in the workplace. In over 20 years of practicing employment litigation in California, my pregnancy discrimination caseload has not let up. There are typically two types of cases. The first is when a woman finds out she is pregnant in the course of employment, and after a stellar career with no performance problems, she finds her position has "been eliminated" along with one or two other employees, of course, to make it look inconspicuous., author, Pregnancy Discrimination of Work: an open secret, Daily Journal, 2018
