1. Is discrimination on the basis of pregnancy prohibited by the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992?
The Florida Supreme Court in Delva v. Continental Group, Inc., 137 So. 3d 371 (Fla. 2014), held that pregnancy is a primary characteristic of the female sex and a natural condition unique to women. Discrimination based on pregnancy is, therefore, unlawful discrimination because of sex prohibited by the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992.
