INFORMATION
Training Overview

Addressing Pregnancy Discrimination in the Workplace. New Laws for Pregnancy and Lactation Accommodations.

Twenty-one percent (21%) of pregnant employees report feeling afraid to inform their employers about their pregnancies due to concerns about discrimination or retaliation. Discrimination against pregnant workers has been prohibited since the enactment of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act(PDA). If you thought you understood your legal obligations for handling pregnant employees in your workplace, think again. The rules change so quickly that it is hard to keep up.

Stay updated on the rapidly changing rules for accommodating pregnant employees. This webinar will cover key topics like the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), state and municipal laws, EEOC guidelines, the PUMP Act, and much more. Learn about reasonable accommodations for pregnancy and nursing, including legal obligations, lactation room requirements, and sample lactation policies.
