I’m pregnant, do I have to tell my employer?

An employee who has any medical disability, even pregnancy when it becomes a disability, does not have to tell their employer unless they’re seeking an accommodation or disability leave. Otherwise, your medical conditions are your personal private information. Often employees who are pregnant or who have any other medical condition find themselves in need of some sort of accommodation, whether it’s a scheduling accommodation or accommodation regarding lifting. In those cases, is you do require an accommodation, you need to tell your employer the medical reason for it.
