I have read about age/racial discrimination, but what about pregnancy discrimination? Is this also common and have you or someone you know experienced it?

I personally have. With work based on productivity my TM actually said “well if you hadn’t been out 6 weeks, your numbers would be higher”. All my time off was literally protected under FMLA. Maternity leave should NEVER be used against an employee.
@5eec. Don't you see trying to cancel a person from speaking freely is futile. Fog in a mirror? If you consider yourself a player and are self medicating of the Kool aid fog in your mirror, please by all means to the back of the little bus. LOL
To answer the initial question, I haven't seen it, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened.
I will say that I know a person get hired, visibly pregnant in the interview, and went on maternity leave during training. When she came back, she was placed into a new training class with a slightly different job assignment within the same role and department.
Discrimination.... I don't think so. Corruption.... very possible.
You are correct. Just because you avoided your own expiration and manage to still fog a mirror is not highly coveted for promotional purposes. If so every TM would be in their 60’s,,,,,,
Remember SF never has and never will respect tenure and knowledge for promotability. SF only looks for those willing to sell their heart, their family, and their faith for the company. Stick around, be quiet, watch and observe. You'll learn.
I think the one person who said remote worker discrimination is talking about the fact that tons of LOC people are being ignored for promotions. Simply saying they didn’t interview well - convenient isn’t it?
Remote worker. Depends on how it's put. Same job class? Could be...
How about remote worker discrimination?
Speaking from experience
It depends. Not absolute yes or no.
If you truly believe you are unique and are not "cookie cutter", the answer is maybe. That scares them and they label you.
Speaking from experience…
The job itself was no different and the benefits provided to me were good.
@1bil. That's funny too.
I am a man and I believe I've been pregnant since the beginning of COVID, or at least the last 2 years.
I'm displaying all the normal signs.
I've gained weight, I'm occasionally moody.
I believe SF has discriminated against me by not providing me with maternity leave. I'm afraid to tell anyone at SF that I might be pregnant because of all the posts I've seen on this site.
What should I do?
Do you think I have a case against SF?
@1tum. Now that's funny!
Yes, none of the men I work with have gotten pregnant. That is clear discrimination on SF’s part.
How's that DEI working out for you?
how bout age discrimination?
