Discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition is discrimination on the basis of sex. Women affected by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions should be treated the same for all employment-related purposes, including receipt of benefits, as other persons not so affected but similar in their ability or inability to work. For example, pregnant women should be treated the same as a man who breaks his leg in an off-duty accident. Employers are prohibited from forcing a pregnant employee to take disability leave as long as the employee is still physically fit to work. Employers may not alter a woman's assignment against her will based on her pregnancy if that decision is based on stereotypes about what kind of work pregnant women should do or on concerns about how the public or other officers will react to a pregnant officer.
