New Rules Require Employers To Provide “Reasonable Accommodations” To Pregnant Employees
The EEOC recently issued guidance that now requires employers to “reasonably accommodate” a 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 Supreme Court basically held that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act could require an employer to provide accommodation to pregnant employees similar to accommodations they would provide to other disabled employees.

In addition to the EEOC Guidance and the Supreme Court decision, many municipal and state laws have been amended recently to include pregnancy as a disability for which employers will need to provide reasonable accommodations.
