The Hawaii Fair Employment Practice (FEP) Law prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of sex, including discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions. The Law covers all public and private employers regardless of size (HI Rev. Stat. Sec. 378-1et seq.).
Employers are required to treat women affected by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions the same for all employment-related purposes, including benefits, as other employees in the workplace are treated with a temporary disability.
