Pregnancy And Medical Circumstances

Employers are increasingly held accountable for discrimination against pregnant women or employees dealing with medical situations.  The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) bars certain types of employment discrimination on the basis of pregnancy.

  • Refusal to hire because of pregnancy status
  • Discharging an employee because of pregnancy status
  • Treating a pregnant employee in a manner less favorable the non pregnant employees with similar work abilities or inabilities
  • Discriminating against an employee based on pregnancy-related disabilities
