NYC changes sergeant’s exam policy after pregnant cop misses exam while giving birth — and wasn’t allowed to reschedule

NYC changes sergeant’s exam policy after pregnant cop misses exam while giving birth — and wasn’t allowed to reschedule

Date: 
August 4, 2015

City bureaucrats refused to let a pregnant cop reschedule her sergeant’s exam — even though the test was on her due date.

Now, thanks to a legal challenge by the determined officer, the city has changed its policy . . . .

With the help of her union and lawyers from Legal Momentum, she filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. That led to a settlement with the city changing its policy.
