Hiring and Firing

Generally, an employer may not terminate an employee because she is pregnant, or refuse to hire a pregnant applicant on account of her pregnancy if she is eligible and qualified for the position.  While evaluating a pregnant applicant, employers may not take into consideration prejudices of other employees, customers or clients.  For example, an employer may not refrain from hiring a pregnant applicant to satisfy a client who does not like hiring pregnant women.
