Concerned about staying compliant with this new federal law?

Learn what the law requires and how to provide your covered employees with reasonable accommodations related to pregnancy and childbirth. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a new US federal law that makes reasonable accommodations more accessible to pregnant and postpartum workers. This important law changes the landscape for supporting pregnant workers in the workplace. The PWFA took effect on June 27th, 2023. The act requires that any public or private sector employers with 15 or more employees provide reasonable workplace accommodations to workers with known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The PWFA is intended to fill the gaps between Title VII (as amended by PDA) ADA and FMLA. It assists in assuring that women are treated equally in the workplace when they may need accommodations due to their pregnancy or related condition. Additionally, this may lead to a culture shift where pregnant employees have historically been forced out of the workplace or on unpaid leave.
