8:37 am
situation. this is a situation where they're saying okay we'll accommodate people who get injured on the job. but we're not going to let someone similarly situationed who is a pregnant woman come to work and go on modified duty. so on its face and as a rule doesn't fly. >> it strikes people as cruel and nonaccommodating for a pregnant women. i think what everyone wants to know what protections exist for pregnant women under lot? >> there are a number. there are several good lawyers out there representing this lawyer from kentucky. it's part of an advocacy group. we have the americans with disabilities act. we also have the pregnancy discrimination act. and now very eventually the eeoc the equal employment opportunity commission has come up with guidelines. and what those guidelines are
