When asked for an accommodation be certain to engage in the interactive process and document it.
Many states have been pushing for employers to treat pregnancy like a temporary disability of an employee who needs a reasonable accommodation. To be clear, it is not being suggested that pregnancy is a disability. What is being suggested is that what is expected of employers to do with an employee who is disabled, is what is expected of employers to do with employees who are pregnant. This video reviews the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and what employers should to for employees seeking accommodations.
