    Supreme Court Issues Decision in Young v. UPS: A Duty To Accommodate Pregnant Employees? - JDSupra

    The Supreme Court of the United States recently issued its decision in Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc.. Vacating and remanding the Fourth Circuit’s decision, the Court concluded that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (“PDA”) “requires courts to consider the extent to which an employer’s policy treats pregnant workers less favorably than it treats nonpregnant workers similar in their ability or inability to work” and that there was a genuine dispute regarding “whether UPS provided more favorable treatment to at least some employees whose situation cannot reasonably be distinguished from Young’s.” Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc., 575 U.S. ___ (2015).
