AT&T Corp. v. Hulteen, 07-543

In a Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) challenge to Defendant's pension calculation system, summary judgment for Plaintiff is reversed where an employer does not necessarily violate the PDA when it pays pension benefits calculated in part under an accrual rule, applied only pre-PDA, that gave less retirement credit for pregnancy than for medical leave generally. Because the pension payments accord with a bona fide seniority system's terms, they are insulated from challenge under Title VII section 703(h).
