SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The Justice Department has announced a settlement over allegations that the San Antonio police department discriminated against a pregnant detective.
The Justice Department sued last September, saying the department violated civil rights law by reassigning the woman because she was pregnant.
The settlement faces federal court approval.
It requires San Antonio to maintain nondiscriminatory policies, train and educate supervisors on the proper treatment of pregnant employees and provide monetary compensation.
The police department cooperated in the investigation and already has revised its policies.
