Pregnancy Discrimination Case Against UPS Reborn
Scott Schneider was quoted in New Orleans City Business on March 27, 2015. The article “Pregnancy Discrimination Case Against UPS Reborn” discussed how the Supreme Court has reopened a case looking at whether a pregnant worker was discriminated against by her former employer.
