Aug. 11: Pregnancy Discrimination Is a Problem


The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission’s annual report says pregnancy discrimination continues to be a major concern in the workplace. One in 10 complaints of discrimination at job sites involves pregnancy. The report outlines one case in which a pregnant worker was told she wouldn’t get any job training because her employer felt it would be a waste of time. The company never admitted any wrongdoing, but the fired worker received a $5,000 settlement after the commission investigated.
