Pregnancy discrimination case goes before Supreme Court
The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of a woman who says United Parcel Service violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 by not accommodating the physical limitations of pregnant workers. The high court took the case after an appeals court rejected Young's arguments. "The most important aspect of this case is that UPS provided accommodated work to basically anyone who has a lifting restriction of 20 pounds or more, except when it results from pregnancy," said law professor Samuel Bagenstos of the University of Michigan.
