Prepare a 2- to 3-page paper (not counting the cover and
reference pages) that discusses how the Family and Medical Leave Act, the
Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, safety laws
or other state laws might apply to the following scenario.
One of your old college roommates, Sandra, is a nurse who
took a job that required her to be able to lift 50 pounds smoothly. She was
told the job had this physical strength requirement for patient safety and to
ensure that teams of nurses could move patients as needed. Sandra worked for a
nursing home chain that employed 900 employees. Sandra had become pregnant and
on her doctors advice tried to refrain from lifting 50 pounds. After she kept
finding herself in situations at work that required her to do this kind of
lifting, she decided to just stay home until the baby was born. After the baby
was born, Sandra went back to work, but her baby developed a medical condition
that required her to see doctors frequently. Sandra didn’t have anyone else
who could be a dedicated caregiver for her baby, so she took leave from work
to tend to her child. When her leave was about to expire, she got her
daughters doctor to write a note in support of extending her leave. The note
wasnt clear and suggested that the doctor thought it would be nice, but not
necessary, for mother and child to be together. Sandra’s manager told her that
the nursing home wouldn’t be able to keep her job open for her any longer.
However, he told her she should apply to the company again as a new-hire when
she was ready to get back to work.
