US Supreme Court Devises Test for Discrimination Claims of Pregnant Workers

In a 6-3 opinion this week, the United States Supreme Court evaluated the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and devised a new test for determining discrimination claims for employees who become pregnant. America’s highest court reversed a decision by a lower court holding that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act does not give pregnant women “a ‘most favored nation’ status.” A United Parcel Service (UPS) worker sued UPS because they did not put her in a lighter-duty position after she became pregnant.
