The Alaska Human Rights Law prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of sex, including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions, marital status, or parenthood (AK Stat. Sec. 18.80.010 et seq.).
As a general rule, employers must treat pregnancy-related conditions the same as they treat other types of temporary disabilities for all employment-related purposes, including leave and other benefits.
The Act covers all employers regardless of size, as well as labor organizations and employment agencies.
