Lyft Charged with Discrimination

Bradley Mattes   |   August 17, 2022

Several companies announced they’ll pay related costs for employees if they have to cross state lines to get abortions.  One of those is Lyft, a transportation company.  As a result, America First Legal, a nonprofit organization, has asked the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to launch a civil rights investigation into the company.  Lyft doesn’t offer equivalent benefits for women who choose to give birth.  According to America First Legal, this violates the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 and discriminates against women who reject abortion.  It can be argued Lyft’s motivation behind funding abortion costs is that it’s good for the bottom line.  But if they have to pay similar costs for giving birth, I’m guessing they’ll ditch the program, as will other companies.
