Beyond the Maternal Wall: Relief for Family Caregivers Who Are Discriminated Against on the Job

Joan C. Williams

This article first discusses how to frame the legal claims of family caregivers. The author then offers a comprehensive survey of cases in which family caregivers have successfully litigated work-family conflict. This survey, which details state as well as federal causes of action, demonstrates the growing success of family caregivers in court. The author's purpose is to help plaintiffs' lawyers avoid both frivolous lawsuits and common litigation mistakes and to assist management-side lawyers in counseling their clients on the need to institute training programs and change workplace practices to avoid the potential for legal liability.
