In Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc., the Supreme Court created a modified McDonnell Douglas standard to evaluate pregnancy accommodation cases. If you are wondering how courts are handling these claims post-Young, I highly recommend an article by Joanna Grossman and Gillian Thomas. Their article, Making Sure Pregnancy Works: Accommodation Claims After Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc., discusses appellate and trial court opinions post-Young and shows how Young affected how courts analyze these claims.
The article is published at 14 Harv. L. & Pol'y Rev. 319, 330 (2020) and is also available here.
