PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh city leaders have voted to make pregnancy a protected class in the city’s anti-discrimination code.
Councilwoman Erika Strassburger, who introduced the bill in February, says the passage of the legislation Tuesday has the city “leading the way nationwide.” The Post-Gazette reports Pittsburgh’s anti-discrimination code, which will now include 14 protected classes, applies to employers in city limits that have at least five employees.
