Recent legal developments have placed pregnancy discrimination in the spotlight, and institutions should be prepared for increased enforcement efforts in this area moving forward. Pregnancy discrimination is prohibited by myriad federal laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the recently enacted Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. Perhaps now more than ever, it is critical that colleges and universities understand their institutional obligations when it comes to protecting the rights of pregnant students and employees.

HSE attorneys Lindsey N. Bober and Kathryn M. Stiffler discuss relevant considerations, including:

  • An overview of the federal pregnancy discrimination laws applicable to students and employees;
  • Current and anticipated updates to the legal landscape, including proposed changes to Title IX’s pregnancy protections; and
  • Best practices for accommodating pregnant students and employees.
