&nbsp;Jennifer Erickson was employed by Bartell Drug Company.&nbsp; Jennifer sued the company because its insurance plan failed to provide coverage for prescription contraceptives.&nbsp; She alleged that this was a form of sex discrimination under Title VII and a violation of the Pregnancy Act (PDA).&nbsp; Her employer defended by arguing that its failure to provide coverage for prescription contraceptives did not violate Title VII or the PDA because prescription contraceptives were voluntary, were preventive, were used by women only, and did not treat or prevent an illness or disease and because control of one’s fertility choices was not pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition under PDA.&nbsp; Bartell Drug Company did cover vasectomy surgery for men. Is preventing pregnancy for women only a form of sex discrimination? Is it a form of pregnancy discrimination?&nbsp; Fully explain the reasons for your answer.&nbsp;

&nbsp;Barie Hamilton worked as a retail store manager for Bally of Switzerland.&nbsp; She claimed that she was sexually harassed by her female supervisor and that she was fired and given negative references because she filed a complaint about the supervisor’s behavior.&nbsp; The employer/supervisor claimed Hamilton was fired because her store sales numbers had dropped and that her store was losing money.&nbsp; Notes in Hamilton’s file indicate that the supervisor had discussed the problem with Hamilton on three occasions. Hamilton alleged that her supervisor’s behavior including telling her that she (the supervisor) was gay, inviting Hamilton and her department out for drinks after work one Friday night, and complimenting her wardrobe, constituted sexual harassment.&nbsp; Bally alleges that Hamilton was fired after a worldwide reorganization of the company.&nbsp; Has Hamilton pled sufficient facts to constitute hostile-environment sexual harassment?&nbsp; Fully explain the reasons for your answer.&nbsp;
