Overview of Connecticut's Pregnancy Discrimination Law

Overview of Connecticut's Pregnancy Discrimination Law

Under Connecticut law, employers cannot terminate or otherwise discriminate against an employee or an applicant because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a related condition.  Employers are required to make reasonable accommodations for an employee, or job applicant, due to pregnancy, childbirth or a related condition.  Reasonable accommodations include, but are not limited to (1) frequent or longer breaks; (2) modified policies concerning food or drinks; (3) assistance with manual labor; (4) increased time-off; and (5) modified dress code or uniform requirements.  An employer can only deny an accommodation if it can prove that making the accommodation would cause the employer undue hardship.  In addition, employees, upon request, shall receive a leave of absence due to pregnancy.  Employers are prohibited from retaliating against an employee for requesting accommodation.
