The Pregnancy Discrimination Act amending Title VII was enacted in 1978. More than 35 years later, the EEOC and the courts are still struggling to determine what it means in the workplace and how pregnant employees should be treated under other laws. Last year alone over 5,342 charges of pregnancy discrimination were filed, and pregnancy discrimination is now a major priority for the EEOC. In fact, the Commission issued its first Guidance in 30 years on this topic on July 14, 2014. In Part 1 of our series, we discussed that Guidance and Young v. UPS, Inc.

In Part II, we will discuss how pregnancy is treated by the EEOC under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended and by the DOL under the Family and Medical Leave Act; other requirements affecting pregnant workers; lactation spaces for breast feeding mothers under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; select state laws; and best practices for employers.
