Disabilities as a result of a pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition are for all job-related purposes, temporary disabilities and shall not be treated less favorably than other temporary disabilities under any health, medical, or temporary disability insurance plan or sick leave plan maintained by employer. The question of maintenance is one of fact which will be judged upon all of the evidence. No written or unwritten employment policies or practices involving matters such as commencement and duration of leave, the availability of extensions, the accrual of seniority and other benefits and privileges, reinstatement or payment under any health, medical, or temporary disability insurance plan, or under any sick leave, disability leave or disability benefit plan whatsoever, whether formal or informal, shall be applied to disability due to pregnancy, on terms or conditions less favorable than those applied to other temporary disabilities.
