What is considered pregnancy discrimination?

Pregnancy discrimination occurs when a pregnant employee is being treated differently than an employee who is not pregnant. Often it is not being hired for or fired from a job, passed over for a promotion or denied benefits or accommodations because of a pregnancy or the intention or likelihood of becoming pregnant. Even if the employer gives another reason for the adverse action against the pregnant employee a case of pregnancy discrimination could still potentially be made.
