One of the most important areas of employment law over the last few years is known as family responsibilities discrimination. This focuses on the rights of an employee to take time off of work because she is pregnant, his spouse is pregnant, to care for a sick child, or care for an elderly parent, among other issues. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently held a panel on this important area of employment law; a brief summary is available here.
