Nursing Care Management Of America v.Ohio Civil Rights Commission v.

Brief of Amicus Curiae, Ohio Employment Lawyers Association in Support of Ohio Civil Rights Commission


The employer discharged an employee who requested time off for her pregnancy. The employer had a medical leave policy that provided for leave only after an employee had completed one year of service. The pregnant employee had not yet completed one year of service. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission found that the leave policy violated Ohio's law against pregnancy discrimination. In particular, the OCRC found that under it's regulations, an employer is required to provide reasonable time off for pregnancy. The employer argued that the statute (which mirrors Title VII's Pregnancy Discrimination Act) does not require such affirmative accommodation. The trial court entered summary judgment in favor of the employer. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission appealed.
