I really don't want to feel deceitful. I want to tell them soon so we can work on a plan for once I take leave. I am due in early October. I want to prove myself and be treated like anyone else. However, I want us all to be prepared come the fall.
My ultimate question is, am I wrong for not saying anything? Also, being that I'm newly employed could I ultimately be denied a reasonable week leave and fired?
I am very anxious about this. First of all, congratulations are in order! For both the new job and the new baby. Both are very exciting. First, let's talk about the law. You aren't required to disclose a pregnancy in a job interview.
You're not even required to tell your boss when you're in a job, although eventually, you'll want to bring it up. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act makes it illegal to discriminate against a woman on the basis of pregnancy. That said, people absolutely do discriminate against pregnant women when they hire. It's not because they are horrible people-- although sometimes they are --It's because every baby has to come out eventually. When you hire, you tend to want someone who will be there to do the work.
This discrimination can be either conscious "I'd like to hire Jane, but she's pregnant and I can't afford to have someone take time off.
Let's go with him. A hiring manager may not even realize the bias. But, you've got the job, so yay! And you will need to tell your new boss pretty quickly. Can they deny you leave? The answer to that is probably not.
Companies are required to treat pregnancy as they would with any disability. Women over all now obtain more education than men and have almost as much work experience.
Women moved from clerical to managerial jobs and became slightly more likely than men to be union members. Both of these changes helped improve wage parity, Ms. Yes, women sometimes voluntarily choose lower-paying occupations because they are drawn to work that happens to pay less, like caregiving or nonprofit jobs, or because they want less demanding jobs because they have more family responsibilities outside of work.
England, in other research , has found that any occupation that involves caregiving, like nursing or preschool teaching, pays less, even after controlling for the disproportionate share of female workers. After sifting through the data, Ms. Kahn concluded that pure discrimination may account for 38 percent of the gender pay gap.

Again, you are looking way too much into this. I so wanted the job that my brain froze, I stumbled my way through the questions, and I left thinking I'd blown it. Your partner doesn't even have to do or say anything specific.
Discrimination could also indirectly cause an even larger portion of the pay gap, they said, for instance, by discouraging women from pursuing high-paying, male-dominated careers in the first place. Blau said. For example, social factors may be inducing more women than men to choose lower-paying but geographically flexible jobs, she and Mr.
This factor is both a response to and a cause of the gender pay gap. Some explanations for the pay gap cut both ways.
One intriguing issue is the gender difference in noncognitive skills. Men are often said to be more competitive and self-confident than women, and according to this logic, they might be more inclined to pursue highly competitive jobs. But Ms. Blau warned that it is impossible to separate nature from nurture. Occupations that require such skills have expanded much more than others since , according to research by David J.

Deming at Harvard University. And women seem to have taken more advantage of these job opportunities than men. Still, even when women join men in the same fields, the pay gap remains. Men and women are paid differently not just when they do different jobs but also when they do the same work. Research by Claudia Goldin, a Harvard economist, has found that a pay gap persists within occupations.
Female physicians, for instance, earn 71 percent of what male physicians earn, and lawyers earn 82 percent. It happens across professions: This month, the union that represents Dow Jones journalists announced that its female members working full time at Dow Jones publications made 87 cents for every dollar earned by their full-time male colleagues.
Certain policies have been found to help close the remaining occupational pay gap, including raising the minimum wage, since more women work at the lowest end of the pay scale. Paid family leave helps, too. Another idea, Ms. An Upshot article last Sunday about the gender pay gap misstated the percentage of the gap that two Cornell economists said could be attributed to pure discrimination. They determined it was 38 percent, not 9 percent. The Upshot provides news, analysis and graphics about politics, policy and everyday life.
