Related to a story posted earlier today about employers getting information about you from your employer-provided or supported pregnancy app, consider this new law in New York City:

New York City employers should be aware of a recent amendment to the NYCHRL that adds sexual and reproductive health decisions as a protected characteristic. This new protected category encompasses “any decision by an individual to receive services, which are arranged for or offered or provided to individuals relating to sexual and reproductive health, including the reproductive system and its functions.” Such services include but are not limited to “fertility-related medical procedures, sexually transmitted disease prevention, testing, and treatment, and family planning services and counseling, such as birth control drugs and supplies, emergency contraception, sterilization procedures, pregnancy testing, and abortion.”
