    With Supreme Court case pending, UPS reverses policy on pregnant workers - Washington Post

    This week United Parcel Service sent a memo to employees announcing a change in policy for pregnant workers: starting January 1, the company will offer temporary light duty positions not just to workers injured on the job, which is current policy, but to pregnant workers who need it as well.

    “UPS takes pride in attaining and maintaining best practices in the area of equal opportunity and employment, and has elected to change our approach to pregnancy accommodations,” a memo sent to workers reads.

    Hang on a minute. Isn’t this is the very stance that UPS is arguing against in the upcoming, high-profile Supreme Court case, Young v UPS?

    Indeed it is.

    They didn't elect....if the elected it wouldn't be a case being heard by the Supreme Court.....they are backed in a corner knowing they were going to lose the case
