A group of women in my work place started looking into the policies for pregnancy in the lab.  We were told we must disclose pregnancy ASAP and we will be immediately removed from laboratory work for the duration of the pregnancy.  If a women doesnt want to work in the lab while pregnant, I understand however, is it legal to remove a women who would like to continue to work in the lab if she and her doctor agree that she physically capable to do so?  I was wondering what different industry policies are out there?  Any information would be great.
