Pregnancy & Parenting

Title IX protects pregnant and parenting students from discrimination.

Title IX protects against discrimination related to pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions. It prohibits a school from applying any rule related to a student’s parental, family, or marital status that treats students differently based on their sex. Title IX also ensures the right to take medically necessary leave and to be free of harassment, intimidation, or other discrimination because of pregnancy or parenting-related conditions.

Additional Protections

Recently, additional guarantees protecting pregnant and nursing employees were passed. Please review guidance for implementation in the workplace.

Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA)
