Well, think about this for a while. Lets not get into the 5 letter words of right and wrong. When a couple has a child or children. Who do you think takes more time off before, during and after? Who is less likely to go back to work after the child? Who is more likely to take time off after that? Add all of that together and what do you have? IMO, you have an employee that has less longevity than a male. Put sex aside for a minute, if you have 2 employees, lets say they are both male for the sake of arguement. One of them has indicated to you that he might move out of state and the other you know has a very good chance of staying put. Who do you think you will promote?
