Pregnancy Cases and Legislation Affecting Equality and Costs in Schools.
O'Reilly, Robert C.
This paper discusses five court cases decided in the seventies that explain the viewpoints held by the courts on pregnant school employees. According to the paper, the cases reveal the judicial background that prompted P.L. 95-555, passed by Congress in 1978 and identified as an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII. The cases, not all of which include school personnel, include Green, Buckley, LaFleur, Geduldig, and General Electric. The paper concludes that, with the inclusion of pregnancy in the fringe benefit categories of sick leave and disability, some new personnel costs will be generated. It recommends that school boards consider the relationship between new costs and productivity as budgets are built and total fringe benefit packages are negotiated. (Author/LD)
