Beside the fact that discriminating against prospective employees could land your company in litigation hot water, it may come back to bite you later on. Most people have heard of Roe v. Wade but haven’t heard of Sarah Weddington, the attorney representing the woman seeking an abortion in Roe v. Wade. According to an ABA article, Weddington may not have had that opportunity had she been given a fair chance at a Dallas law firm. During the interview process, the law firm questioned her ability to work the long hours and still make it home to cook dinner. They were also concerned that they couldn’t cuss her out as much as male associates. She didn’t get the position, but she didn’t file a lawsuit. Years later, when she was advising President Jimmy Carter on women’s issues and judicial appointments, a senior partner in that same Dallas law firm wanted to be a federal judge. He didn’t get the position.
