Traditionally, employers have had considerable control over what types of pregnancy benefits it provided to their female employees. The rule was simple – treat pregnant workers the same as you treat any other temporarily “disabled” individual. In recent guidance, the EEOC is trying to change the platform – stating that employers must now provide accommodations to pregnant workers if it can be done reasonably. The Supreme Court has also recently heard oral arguments about what accommodations the Pregnancy Discrimination Act may require an employer to provide its employees. 

Agenda:

  • Brief history of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and court interpretations;
  • What it means to treat pregnant workers the “same” as others with temporary disabilities;
  • Pregnancy issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act;
  • Pregnancy and the Family and Medical Leave Act;
  • The EEOC’s current stance on accommodations for pregnant workers;
  • Pregnancy and the Affordable Care Act
