Peggy Young was working part-time as a delivery driver for United Parcel Service in 2006 when she became pregnant. Though her job description required that she be able to lift 70 lbs, she could lift no more than 20 lbs during her pregnancy. She asked UPS for accommodations, either temporary desk work or assistance lifting heavy packages. UPS argued that Young didn’t meet their criteria for light duty and required her to take unpaid leave. In 2008, she filed a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit, which was heard by the Supreme Court in 2014.
