Cheryl Hall maintains that she was fired by Nalco Company for taking time off from work to undergo in vitro fertilization after being diagnosed with infertility. She filed suit under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), alleging her termination constituted discrimination on the basis of sex. The district court concluded that Hall's allegations did not state a Title VII claim because infertility is a gender- neutral condition entitled to no protection under the language of the PDA. The case went up on appeal. Do you agree with the district court that infertility is a gender-neutral condition? Or should the appellate court reverse the district court and hold that Hall was discriminated against on the basis of sex? Explain your reasoning.
