Accommodating Pregnant Employees: New Rules and Requirements for Employers

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 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 U.S. 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.
