Pregnancy Discrimination

About 75 percent of women working in the United States will become pregnant at some point in their lives, so protection from discrimination before, during, and after pregnancy is an important concern for many working women.

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 prohibits employers with 15 or more employees, including state and local governments, from discriminating against you because of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.
