The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), which turned 40 in October 2018, protects pregnant women against “unequal treatment” as far as allowing women to do jobs that are open to a non-pregnant person. But what the act does not do is to protect pregnant women while on the job when they need to limit their work responsibilities due to their pregnancy.

A New York Times investigation found that at least five women have had miscarriages while working at a Memphis warehouse run by XPO Logistics, which processes shipments for Verizon.
