Pregnant workers have been forced out of their jobs and denied accommodations that would enable them to continue working and supporting their families. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act would help end this discrimination and promote healthy pregnancies and protect the economic security of pregnant women and their families. Ohio and Federal Pregnant Workers Fairness Acts, both proposed, along with recently passed similar laws in 27 states and cities are expanding employer requirements to address conditions related to workers’ pregnancies.
This 3-hour course will explain what the laws are trying to achieve. Dan will provide attendees with recommendations to meet current and future challenges with workplace pregnancy issues.
