Effective October 1, 2013, the Maryland “Reasonable Accommodation for Disabilities Due to Pregnancy Act (SB 784)” requires businesses with 15 or more employees to provide accommodations to an employee with a disability caused by pregnancy. “Reasonable Accommodation” is defined as an accommodation for an employee’s disability caused or contributed by a pregnancy and an accommodation that will not impose an undue hardship to the business. If an employee requests a reasonable accommodation, the employer must explore all possible means of providing the accommodation, including changing the employee’s job duties, changing their work hours, relocating the employee’s work area, providing mechanical or electrical aids, transferring the employee to a less strenuous or less hazardous position, or providing leave.

An employer may require an employee to provide verification from a health care provider regarding the medical advisability of a reasonable accommodation to the same extent a certification is required for other temporary disabilities. Affected Maryland employers must post a notice and update employee handbooks with information regarding an employee’s rights to a reasonable accommodation for a disability caused or contributed by pregnancy.
