Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations to employees (and applicants for employment ) for a condition relating to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition , unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the business of the employer. Lactation , or the need to express breast milk for a nursing child , is defined as a related medical condition. Pregnant women are protected from termination due to refusal of their employer to provide a rea sonable accommodation . To prove undue hardship, the employer must demonstrate the accommodation is significantly difficult to provide or expensive considering without limitation the nature and cost of the accommodation; overall financial resources of the employer, the overall size of the business with respect to the number of employees, type and location of the available facilities, and the effect of the accommodation on the operations of the employer.
