Huffington Post: Why Caregiver Discrimination Is Bad for Business

Oct. 15, 2014
Editorial on discrimination against parents and caregivers in the work place references a 2011 study by Baylor management professors Dawn S. Carlson, Ph.D., Merideth Ferguson, Ph.D., and Emily M. Hunter, Ph.D., on the “Health and Turnover of Working Mothers After Childbirth Via the Work–Family Interface: An Analysis Across Time.” The researchers found that mothers are much more likely to stay on the job if they have greater control over their schedules. High-performing employees are often deemed less valuable in the workplace because of the commonly held assumption that their family-oriented priorities replaced their drive to succeed. (Baylor Media Communications pitched this original research to national media in June 2011, with placements ranging from Nature to CNBC to U.S. News & World Report.)
