Schiff Hardin Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
July 30, 2014
"On July 14, 2014, the [EEOC] issued a detailed Enforcement Guidance on pregnancy discrimination and related issues ... Exclusion of all infertility coverage for all employees is gender neutral and does not violate Title VII, but exclusions of treatments that pertain only to one gender might violate Title VII.... [An] employer's health insurance plan must cover prescription contraceptives on the same basis as prescription drugs, devices and services that are used to prevent the occurrence of medical conditions other than pregnancy (such as vaccinations, physical examinations, prescription drugs that prevent high blood pressure or lower cholesterol levels). A health insurance plan is facially discriminatory if it excludes prescription contraception but otherwise provides comprehensive coverage."
