Prohibitions against Pregnancy Discrimination
An employer cannot discriminate against any person otherwise qualified because of pregnancy.
*Applies to employers of two or more employees; exempts religious organizations.
Wyoming does not provide additional protections to the federal law.
Pregnancy-related Disability Accommodation
Wyoming does not specifically accommodate pregnancy or its attendant medical conditions as a disability.
The act of breastfeeding an infant child, including breastfeeding in any place where the woman may legally be, does not constitute public indecency. It is unclear whether this authorization extends to a woman’s place of employment.
Family and Childcare Leave Laws
Wyoming does not expand upon federal family leave laws.
