Featured Employment Case
Williams v. MacFrugal’s Bargains – Close Outs, Inc., 67 Cal. App. 4th 479, 79 Cal. Rptr. 2d 98 (1998)
An employee who was discharged following her “diagnostic hysterectomy” sued her former employer for pregnancy discrimination and wrongful termination in violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). The Superior Court sustained the employer’s demurrer, and the employee appealed. The Court of Appeal held that the employee’s hysterectomy, performed several years after childbirth, was not a medical condition “related” to pregnancy or childbirth within meaning of FEHA. The Court explained that in order for a female employee’s medical condition to be “related medical condition” within meaning of Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) provision protecting against pregnancy discrimination, it must be connected to pregnancy or childbirth, that is, condition must flow directly therefrom; it is not sufficient that medical condition merely involve woman’s reproductive organs. The employee argued that the phrase “related medical condition” includes any medical condition involving a woman’s reproductive organs. However the court did not agree: “The Fair Employment and Housing Commission defines the phrase “related medical condition” to be “any medically recognized physical or mental condition that is related to pregnancy or childbirth.” (Cal.Code Regs., tit. 2, § 7291.2, subd. (p).) Appellant has cited no authority, and we have found none, holding that section 12945 applies to medical conditions other than those directly related to pregnancy or childbirth. Appellant, however, contends that “related medical condition” should be broadly construed to include any medical condition involving a woman’s reproductive organs. The complaint, however, does not allege what “medical condition” exists. As we shall explain, the phrase “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition” limits the reach of section 12945 to medical conditions directly related to pregnancy or childbirth.”
