It seems to me that compliance the regs for "Declared Pregnant Workers" 
would keep an employer in compliance with EEOC requirements.  But also 
remember that a worker must file a complaint before EEOC can get involved, 
and workers rarely file complaints when they believe they are being 
treated fairly.
