Caregiver Discrimination

KMB attorney Justine Andronici is quoted by the Chronicle of Philanthropy in a report on "family-responsibilities discrimination" or "caregiver discrimination" on the part of non-profit employers. According to Andronici, such discrimination is not uncommon even when prohibited in an organization's employment manual. Family-responsibilities discrimination has attracted enough attention recently to prompt the EEOC to issue a comprehensive Enforcement Guidance on the topic, as well as on related issues of gender-role stereotyping of women.
