An employer must treat an employee who is temporarily unable to perform her job due to pregnancy as it would any other temporarily disabled employee.  This may include, for example, modifying the employee’s job so that she can perform its essential functions or finding temporary, alternative assignments.  It may also include putting the employee on disability leave, either with or without pay, in accordance with the employer’s generally applicable disability leave policy.
