Pregnant employees are entitled to various protections under federal and state law, including the right not to be discriminated against, and in certain circumstances, the right to reasonable accommodation and time off from work.
While federal law sets the minimum requirements that employers in all states must follow, states are free to create laws that are more protective of pregnant employees.
Many states have done so, with some laws applying to a wider set of employers or providing greater accommodation or leave rights.
