Accommodations for Pregnancy & Related Conditions for Campus Staff & Faculty
Consistent with the Pregnant Workers' Fairness Act (PWFA), the University of Utah provides reasonable
accommodations to workers' limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or other related medical conditions.
Breastfeeding, pumping, and medical conditions related to lactation are among the conditions that are covered
under the PWFA. The University's Human Resources Management Department (UHRM) is charged with determining reasonable
accommodations under the PWFA. Requests for accommodation are reviewed on a case-by-case basis with the help of
the individual's home department leader(s) with a need to know, and as needed to process the request.
Under the PWFA, if an employee/faculty is experiencing barriers at work, due to pregnancy or related
conditions, that impacts their ability to perform job functions or meet job expectations, they can request
an accommodation to help remove such barrier(s).
