Topic Background:

Federal and state laws governing pregnancy and new parenthood including adoption related employment issues generally fall into two categories: prohibition against adverse employment actions and rules covering pregnancy-related leave.

Pregnancy related leave issues are addressed under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) which amended Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to recognize pregnancy discrimination as a form of sex discrimination, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and in limited circumstances, the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). The laws govern how pregnant employees and new parents should be treated when they are unable to work because of their pregnancy. Many states also have laws regarding pregnancy discrimination, pregnancy leave and family and medical leave laws, and a growing number of states require employers to make an effort to provide a room where employees who breastfeed their babies can express milk at work.
