Police Work, Pregnancy Collide in Ky. Town

August 21, 2014  | 

A pregnant Kentucky officer's request for desk duty when she was five months pregnant was denied, and she is now suing her agency for discrimination, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.  

When Officer Lyndi Trischler became pregnant with her son early this year, she didn't think it would be an issue. During her first pregnancy, the Florence (Ky.) Police Department let her work a desk job after being on patrol had become physically impossible.

After consulting with her doctor, Trischler asked her supervisors for modified duty.

This time, however, the city of Florence said no.

Trischler and her attorneys have filed a federal discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, accusing the city of violating both the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
