"Caregiver discrimination"



Oh joy, here comes another whole sector of employment discrimination law developing without any clear legislative charter and imposing unpredictable obligations on employers: "family responsibilities discrimination". �Discrimination based on caregiving is not an expressed category,� said Joan C. Williams, executive director of [the Center for WorkLife Law at Hastings College of Law]. �It�s a reflection of the creativity of lawyers who have set up a new subcategory of litigation within existing workplace discrimination laws.� More here, too.
