US Supreme Court Bolsters Pregnancy Discrimination Act

In a case involving a pregnant UPS delivery driver with 20 pound lifting restriction, the U.S. Supreme Court found that UPS must treat pregnant workers like it treats other workers with similar disabilities.  UPS had successfully argued at the Fourth Circuit that pregnant workers were different from non-pregnant workers even though UPS gave accommodations to injured workers with similar limitations. See Young v. UPS, Docket 12-1226, 3/25/15.
