Legislation to Prohibit Sex Discrimination on the Basis of Pregnancy; Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Employment Opportunities of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, First Session on H.R. 5055 and H.R. 6075.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The purpose of this hearing is for the House Subcommittee on Employment Opportunities to gather evidence on H.R. 5055 and H.R. 6075, amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 so as to prohibit sex discrimination on the basis of pregnancy. Although some observers stated their feeling that this was the original intent of the legislation anyway, a recent Supreme Court decision ("General Electric vs. Gilbert and IUE") stated the contrary. Thus the need was felt for additional legislation to be considered. Presented here is the first day's testimony, consisting of statements, summaries, letters and other supplemental materials from a variety of expert witnesses and interested persons on the subjects of sex discrimination, equal pay, disability benefits, employer responsibility and related concerns.
