Employers are supposed to treat pregnant employees the same as they treat everyone else. However, if you are pregnant and require an accommodation, the employer may be obligated to consider whether a reasonable accommodation allows you to continue to perform the essential functions of your position. Additionally, if you are eligible under Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), you are entitled for up to twelve weeks of job protected leave. Any questions, please contact your Tampa Employment Lawyer Darren McClain.
