- Excerpt from High Court to Hear Case on Pregnancy Accommodations:

The U.S. Supreme Court will use a case involving United Parcel Service to decide whether pregnant employees can be denied accommodations such as light duty when other workers with disabilities receive them. The court said it will hear an appeal by a UPS driver who says the company's refusal to give her a temporary light-duty assignment violated the U.S. Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
