“Pregnant = disabled, at least according to the 6th Circuit”

by Walter Olson on September 2, 2010

Jon Hyman at Ohio Employment Law spots a potentially significant ruling, and has a followup.

P.S. The topic is also discussed on Thursday’s John Stossel show, with guests Katherine Mangu-Ward of Reason and Steve Lonegan of Americans for Prosperity.

This seems like a bit of a no-brainer. Pregnancy, on its own, is not a disability, just like old age isn’t a disability. However, if either condition means you’re unable to cross a parking lot in a reasonable amount of time, then you are disabled. I think if you consult Webster or the OED, they’ll back me up on this.

Nonsense. You CHOOSE to be pregnant. If your job is gone after delivery — too damn bad!
