Panelists include: Sara Gross Methner (UST General Counsel), Tom Berg (UST Law), Teresa Collett (UST Law), and Melissa Raphan (Dorsey LLP).  Program moderated by Elizabeth Schiltz (UST Law). Berg and Collett served as counsel on an amicus brief filed on behalf of a part-time UPS driver who lost seven months of wages and her medical insurance when the company refused to accommodate the lifting restrictions her doctor recommended during her pregnancy. Schiltz also contributed to the brief, which argues that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act should be interpreted broadly to protect women from having to choose between their job and their unborn child.
