Last week, the Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the Hennepin County District Court’s dismissal of certain claims made under the Pregnancy and Parental Leave Act (PPLA) and the Minnesota Whistleblower Act (MWA). The Court of Appeals held that non-leave pregnancy accommodations under the PPLA do not require that the employee requesting accommodation must have worked for the employer for 12 months. The Court of Appeals also stated that the MWA claim, on its face and for purposes of rule 12, is viable.
