It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on a pregnancy related disability. This type of discrimination can occur when an employee is fired or laid off from employment based on her pregnancy related disability. Discrimination can also occur when an employer refuses to hire or promote an employee based on their pregnancy related disability, or if an employee is treated differently in the terms and conditions of employment based on their pregnancy related disability.

Proving Discrimination Based On Pregnancy-Related Disability

Discrimination based on pregnancy related disability can be established in two ways: either by direct evidence or circumstantial evidence. Direct evidence can be comments made to an employee showing a discriminatory bias. Circumstantial evidence can include a showing that the employee was performing her job in a satisfactory manner and an adverse employment action was taken based on her pregnancy related disability. The evidence has to be strong enough to overcome any non-discriminatory reason offered by the employer for the particular action taken against the employee.

Harassment Based On Pregnancy-Related Disability

In addition to discrimination, employees are also protected from harassment based on their pregnancy related disability. Such harassment can include offensive or derogatory comments that are made against an employee based on their pregnancy related disability.
