AT&T Corp. v. Hulteen
No. 07-543

Title:

    AT&T Corporation v. Noreen Hulteen, et al.

Subject:

    Civil Rights, Benefits

Question:

    Before the passage of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (PDA), it was
    lawful to award less service credit for pregnancy leaves than for other temporary
    disability leaves. Gilbert v. Gen. Elec. Co., 429 U.S. 125 (1976). Accordingly, the
    questions presented are

    1. Whether an employer engages in a current violation of Title VII when, in making
    post-PDA eligibility determinations for pension and other benefits, the employer fails
    to restore service credit that female employees lost when they took pregnancy
    leaves under lawful pre-PDA leave policies.

    2. Whether the Ninth Circuit’s finding of a current violation of Title VII in such
    circumstances gives impermissible retroactive effect to the PDA.
