Pregnancy discrimination is prohibited by federal law and most state laws, while some states also require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions. This chart contains information on state and federal pregnancy discrimination and pregnancy accommodation requirements affecting private employers.
This chart covers private employer requirements by state for sexual harassment training and related record retention or notice communications. However, employers in all states should consider providing sexual harassment training in order to minimize liability risks due to a supervisor's inappropriate comments or because of a supervisor's failure to adequately address a harassment incident.
