  • Long-Standing Policy May Have Affected Many Other Women

  • New York, NY - The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") has issued an important Determination regarding sex and pregnancy discrimination by finding that the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority ("TBTA") wrongfully reassigned Officer Lori Ann DiPalo to low-status duties rather than allowing her to return to her regular job after she informed them she was pregnant. Ms. DiPalo is represented by Legal Momentum, the women's legal defense and education fund.

  • Legal Momentum has filed a charge with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the City of New York on behalf of New York City Police Officer Akema Thompson alleging pregnancy discrimination. In 2013, Officer Thompson was unfairly denied an opportunity for promotion to sergeant when the city refused to re-schedule a promotional examination that she missed because she was in the hospital recovering from the birth of her baby.
