Training Description

If you are thinking that you do not need to provide a reasonable accommodation to your pregnant employees, think again.  The laws are changing and you need to get up to speed.  Even though a normal pregnancy was never a disability within the meaning of the ADA,  many states and municipalities have recently enacted laws requiring employers to provide pregnant employees with accommodations.  In addition, the EEOC has recently issued a new guidance that appears to now require employers to reasonably accommodate an employee’s pregnancy.  Moreover, the US Supreme Court has recently weighed in on this issue in a case involving the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.  In Young v, United Parcel Service, Inc. the US Supreme Court basically held that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act could require an employer to provide accommodations to pregnant employees similar to accommodations they would provide to other disabled employees.  Thus, in this case the Supreme Court held that if a company policy creates a “significant burden” for pregnant employees, it could violate the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
