Supreme Court hears case regarding accommodations for pregnancy in the workplace


Wednesday the Supreme Court heard the case of Peggy Young v. UPS, which would not give her lighter work when she was pregnant, and forced her to take unpaid leave.  NBC News has a detailed on the 2006 case story here
   
The oral argument brief PDF is here

   

There seems to be a question of whether pregnancy was treated differently than “disabilities”.  Again, there would be an issue that non-pregnant workers will “subsidize” the slack.
