Reasonable Accommodation

Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, it is unlawful for an employer to refuse to provide a reasonable accommodation requested by an employee for conditions of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The request must be supported by advice from a doctor or other healthcare provider. This can include transfer of such an employee to a less strenuous or hazardous position for the duration of the pregnancy or childbirth related disability where the transfer can be reasonably achieved. However, the employer is not obligated to create an entirely new position for the employee as an accommodation. Employees should also note that the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act does not prohibit the denial of personal leave for breast-feeding and childcare.
