Challenging Sex Discrimination Through the Courts: Maternity Leave Policies.
Pottker, Janice
This study attempted to determine the extent to which school districts had brought their maternity leave policies into compliance with the latest Supreme Court ruling. The study also analyzed the maternity leave requirements of the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), and sought to determine which variables were associated with compliance with the Supreme Court ruling and the EEOC regulations. Interviews and surveys of school district personnel in the nation's 11 largest school districts determined maternity leave policies in effect for the 1974-75 school year. This data indicated that all the school districts complied with those EEOC regulations which were supported by the Supreme Court. The ideal school district, in terms of Total Compliance, was found to be: (1) affiliated with an NEA bargaining agent; (2) of low or medium teacher size; (3) Southern; and (4) with few racial minorities on the school board.
