  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  21-e of section 292 of the executive law, as
added by chapter 269 of the laws of 1997, is amended and a new  subdivi-
sion 21-f is added to read as follows:
  21-e.  The  term  "reasonable accommodation" means actions taken which
permit an employee, prospective employee or member with a disability, OR
A PREGNANCY-RELATED CONDITION, to perform in  a  reasonable  manner  the
activities involved in the job or occupation sought or held and include,
but are not limited to, provision of an accessible worksite, acquisition
or modification of equipment, support services for persons with impaired
hearing  or  vision,  job  restructuring  and  modified  work schedules;
provided, however, that such actions do not impose an undue hardship  on
the  business,  program or enterprise of the entity from which action is
requested.
  21-F. THE TERM "PREGNANCY-RELATED CONDITION" MEANS A MEDICAL CONDITION
RELATED TO PREGNANCY OR CHILDBIRTH  THAT  INHIBITS  THE  EXERCISE  OF  A
NORMAL BODILY FUNCTION OR IS DEMONSTRABLE BY MEDICALLY ACCEPTED CLINICAL
OR  LABORATORY  DIAGNOSTIC  TECHNIQUES;  PROVIDED,  HOWEVER, THAT IN ALL
PROVISIONS OF THIS ARTICLE DEALING WITH EMPLOYMENT, THE  TERM  SHALL  BE
LIMITED  TO  CONDITIONS WHICH, UPON THE PROVISION OF REASONABLE ACCOMMO-
DATIONS, DO NOT PREVENT THE COMPLAINANT FROM PERFORMING IN A  REASONABLE
MANNER  THE ACTIVITIES INVOLVED IN THE JOB OR OCCUPATION SOUGHT OR HELD;

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
