Second Circuit Review: Applying Newly Announced Test for Proof of Pregnancy Discrimination

June 1, 2016 download PDF

Litigation partners Marty Flumenbaum and Brad Karp's Second Circuit Review column appeared in the May 31 issue of the New York Law Journal. The article, titled "Applying Newly Announced Test for Proof of Pregnancy Discrimination," discusses Legg v. Ulster County, in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that the denial of a light-duty accommodation to the pregnant employee of a county correctional facility was sufficient to support an inference of discrimination under the Supreme Court's recently announced "significant burden" standard. Litigation associate Stephen Popernik assisted in the preparation of this article.
