Pennsylvania And New Jersey Employment Attorney Advocates For Victims Of Pregnancy Discrimination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII) is a federal law that makes it unlawful to discriminate against an employee on the basis of her sex. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (“PDA”) was enacted as an amendment to Title VII, and added protections against discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, or pregnancy-related medical conditions.

Under the PDA, an employer may not discriminate against a female for being pregnant or for her potential to become pregnant in the future. An employer must also treat a pregnant employee the same as any other employee. In addition, an employee may not be harassed due to her pregnancy to the extent that it causes a hostile work environment or leads to negative employment decision such as demotion, failure to hire or termination.

Pregnancy-related medical conditions may also be considered a disability under the Americans With Disabilities Act (“ADA”). Under the ADA, employers are required to reasonably accommodate pregnant employees.

Several state and local laws in Pennsylvania and New Jersey also afford protections to pregnant employees.
