Pregnancy discrimination is a subset of sex or gender discrimination. It takes place whenever different and illegal employment practices are applied to pregnant women or those who are affected by a pregnancy related condition. For example, it is illegal to make a hiring decision based on the state of a potential employee’s pregnancy.
Aside of just hiring decisions, employers are obligated to provide maternity leave for expectant mothers (the expectant mother might have to submit medical documentation to ensure that leave is granted, however). A mother who has been granted pregnancy leave is entitled to return to work and occupy the same position that she previously held. It is illegal for an employer to demote somebody after pregnancy leave.
Furthermore, expectant mothers are permitted to take time off for pregnancy related conditions. For example, they are permitted to take sick days caused by severe morning sickness or other related ailments. Additionally, if fringe benefits are permitted for other medical conditions, they must also be provided for pregnancy-related conditions.
