Pregnancy discrimination suits on the rise...still

Pregnancy discrimination suits are on the rise, especially in corporate America. Why, at all levels, are female employees still facing this sort of discrimination? Isn't is concerning when according to the US Department of Labor by 2008, women will make up about 48 percent of the labor force and men 52 percent?

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act is an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions constitutes unlawful sex discrimination under Title VII. Women affected by pregnancy or related conditions must be treated in the same manner as other applicants or employees with similar abilities or limitations.
