[url=“”>Untimely Notice Causes Employer to Lose Insurance Coverage for Employment Claim.</A>
An employer cannot recover from its insurance company the costs of defense and settlement related to an employment discrimination claim where the employer failed to timely notify the insurance company of the claim, a federal court in Washington, D.C., has ruled. American Ctr. for Int’l Labor Solidarity v. Federal Ins. Co., No. 04-01523 (CKK) (D.D.C. Oct. 15, 2007). Granting the insurance company’s motion for summary judgment and denying the employer’s similar motion, the court ruled that a charge before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission constituted a “formal” administrative proceeding requiring notice under the insurance policy.

<a >Ohio Civil Rights Commission Says Maternity Leave Must Be Twelve Weeks.</A>
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission recently announced dramatic amendments to the state’s pregnancy discrimination regulations. (Ohio Adm. Code 4112-5-05). Until now, employers only had to allow a “reasonable period of time” for pregnancy leave. “Reasonable period of time” has been interpreted in many different ways and the period of leave granted varied from employer to employer. Under the new amendments, a minimum of twelve weeks of unpaid leave must be provided for “pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions.” In addition, at the end of the leave the employee must be reinstated to “her original position or to a position of like status and pay, without loss of service credits or other benefits.”
