Young V. UPS, The Pregnancy Discrimination Case To Watch

Pregnancy Discrimination and issues concerning reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers is a key topic among employers lately given that several cities and states have recently passed laws requiring employers to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers, even if their pregnancy does not rise to the level of being a disability under state and/or federal law.1 In addition, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released new “Enforcement Guidance on Pregnancy Discrimination and Related Issues” on July 14, 2014.
