Pregnancy Discrimination: EEOC Guidance and the American Disabilities Act 

In July 2014, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidance on pregnancy discrimination and related issues. This guidance addresses different ways in which pregnancy discrimination may present in the workplace, as well as how the Americans with Disabilities Act and other requirements may affect the employment of pregnant workers. This presentation will review the agency's new guidance and provide an opportunity for questions.

Presented by:

Andrea Baran, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, St. Louis, MO
Baran appointed Regional Attorney of the EEOC’s St. Louis District in July 2014. She returns to the St. Louis District with fifteen years of agency experience, having worked as a Supervisory Trial Attorney in the agency’s Phoenix District Office for four years and as a Trial Attorney in the Kansas City Area Office for eleven years, and she is very happy to be back in the Midwest. Ms. Baran is a frequent trainer for EEOC staff training programs and presenter for external CLE programs. In 2008, she received the EEOC Chair’s Excellence in Leadership Award for her work on EEOC v. Walgreen Co., a systemic race discrimination case, and in 2003 she received the Chair’s CORE award for her work on EEOC v. Rent-a-Center, a systemic sex discrimination case. Ms. Baran received her Juris Doctor from Washington University in St. Louis and her undergraduate degree in government and economics from Smith College. Prior to joining the Commission, Ms. Baran worked in private practice in Kansas City, Missouri.
