Newly filed claims that an AT&T Mobility LLC policy discriminates against pregnant women are part of a wave of cases confronting alleged imbalances for female employees across professions.

Plaintiffs firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll jumped into the case Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. The lawyers filed an amended complaint that added a named plaintiff and class action allegations.

The complaint comes as companies increasingly are facing gender-based scrutiny over workplace policies and practices, including paid leave and compensation. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission this year has filed at least five lawsuits and reached three settlements against alleged pregnancy discrimination.
