California Fair Employment and Housing Commission to Issue Pregnancy Discrimination Regulations

So, the California FEHC, which enforces the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is fixing to revise its pregnancy disability leave regulations. The webpage devoted to these efforts, including a link to the first draft of the regulations is here. If history is a guide, there will be a number of hearings and revisions before final regulations are promulgated. We will have a detailed article on these proposed regulations in the coming weeks. However, one highlight I noticed right away is that the new regulations will explain in more detail how pregnancy disability dovetails with other disabilities regarding "reasonable accommodation obligations" (over and above the separate pregnancy disability leave requirement).
