Supreme Court To Consider Pregnancy Discrimination Case

November 24, 2014

From the National Organization for Women blog:

“The U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Young v. UPS will determine if employers who offer accommodations for non-pregnant employees are obligated to do the same for pregnant women and, in effect, will demonstrate whether the protections in the Pregnancy Discrimination Act are sufficient to stop employers from discriminating against pregnant employees.”

On December 3, 2014, the day the decision is to be handed down, a rally will be held in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. (and other places across the United States).

Read the article for more information on the case, and the rally.
