Employer Guidance on Reasonable Accommodation for Disabilities due to Pregnancy

The Maryland Commission on Civil Rights released guidance for employers to comply with Chapters 547 and 548 of the 2013 Acts of the Maryland General Assembly, enacted on October 1, which require all employers to provide reasonable accommodations to pregnant employees, if their pregnancy causes or contributes to a disability, and does not impose an undue hardship to the employer.

All employers are required to post and include in their employee handbook information regarding the employee’s rights and responsibilities under the new law. The MCCR has developed a poster for businesses to use. You do not have to use this particular poster; however, it has been provided for your convenience.
