Pregnancy discrimination, disability, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Originally aired July 18, 2012


Are pregnant women considered disabled under the ADA? What laws protect women who are pregnant or who have recently given birth from discrimination? Are employers obligated to provide leave to women who are pregnant, or provide other types of workplace accommodations? This webcast will answer all those questions and more, as attorney J. Aaron McCullough facilitates a discussion with law professor Jeannette Cox, and Martin Ebel of the EEOC on pregnancy discrimination in employment, disability, the related law, and recent litigation. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions during the webcast but are encouraged to email questions to J. Aaron McCullough in advance via:
