Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act requires covered employers to provide “reasonable accommodations” to any limitations a worker may have due to pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions, given the accommodation does not cause the employer an “undue hardship.” The Act does not replace federal, state, or local laws that offer more protection for those who are pregnant or have recently given birth. This law will go into effect June 27, 2023.
