Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1988 
70 p. 

The rights discussed in this guide pertain to those guaranteed by federal legislation affecting women seeking jobs, working on the job, and retiring from employment. The section entitled "Getting the Job" contains explanations of services provided by: (1) the U.S. Employment Service; (2) the federal-state partnership established by the National Apprenticeship Act; (3) the employment and training program sponsored by the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA); and (4) vocational education programs that are federally sponsored by the Perkins Vocational Education Act. That section also describes job seekers' federal protection from discrimination. The section called "On the Job" describes a variety of laws that prohibit discrimination (including sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination) and that govern (1) wages; (2) hours; (3) promotions and training; (4) maternity leave; (5) child care and dependent care tax credit; and (6) occupational safety and health. The "After Retirement" section describes the benefits women are entitled to from Social Security, private pension plans, and personal retirement plans such as Keoghs and Individual Retirement Accounts. In all three sections, advice is provided on what to do to obtain benefits or rectify discrimination. The appendices contain addresses of federal compliance agencies and those that administer laws on retirement or disability benefits, addresses of relevant state agencies, and sample discrimination complaint forms.
