Reversing the 9th Circuit, and adopting the position of the 6th and 7th Circuit, the United States Supreme Court determined that ATT had not violated the Pregnancy Discrimination when it calculated pension benefits without including time that women had been out on maternity leave prior to the change in the pregnancy related discrimination laws in 1979. Under the pension benefit plan in existence at the company prior to the change in the law, pregnancy leave was designated a personal leave as opposed to disability leave. This designation resulted in time out on pregnancy leave being subtracted from credited time for pension benefit purposes. This article explains summarizes the Supreme Court's decision in the case.
