Things my Provost wants me to know
Apropos of absolutely nothing, the Provost's office emailed me this today:
"Pregnancy is not a disability under ADA unless there are medical complications. For OU employees we have to treat pregnancies in the same manner as we do other temporary ailments, i.e., broken leg or such."
1. I'm pretty sure that i.e. is not the correct pretentious concept here. I believe this is an e.g. situation.
2. pregnancy = broken leg? WTF? Does OU put body casts on all pregnant employees?
3. I need to know this today of all days exactly why?
