Pregnancy Accommodations for Employees

In compliance with South Carolina law, Clemson University will not discriminate against an individual because of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, including, but not limited to, lactation.

Beyond adhering to state laws, the Office of Access Compliance and Education works to support reasonable accommodations for employees who have medical needs related topregnancy, childbirth, abortion, or related medical conditions. We seek to support University employees as they prepare and enter parenthood, and we are available to answer questions employees have as they navigate this process.
