Pregnancy Case Shows Need For Policy Reviews
Ed Harold’s article “Pregnancy Case Shows Need For Policy Reviews” was featured in New Orleans City Business on April 20, 2015.
The U.S. Supreme Court recently rules in a 6-3 decision that an employee should have her day in court to determine whether United Parcel Services, Inc. violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) when it denied light-duty work to a pregnant employee.
In the article, Ed provides a brief overview of the PDA and discusses what the decision of the UPS court case means for employers.
Ed states that the decision could mean that pregnant employers would enjoy a “most favored nation” status among impaired employees and advises employers to review the reason for any policy that might impose a burden on pregnant employees.
