Why Should You Attend:
Today, employees who are pregnant or new parents have many protections and rights in the workplace. If a woman is temporarily unable to perform her job due to a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth, the employer must treat her situation in the same way as it treats any other temporarily disabled employee. Additionally, impairments resulting from pregnancy may even be disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Barring an undue hardship, an employer may have to provide a reasonable accommodation.
It is also unlawful to harass a woman because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth and harassment for pregnancy related conditions is not always as obvious. Pregnant employees may also have rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Hence It’s critical that an employer have a full understanding of ALL their obligations towards pregnant employees. Including not retaliating towards employees who seek to avail themselves of their rightfully afforded protections.
Attend this webinar to understand all the provisions of Pregnancy with respect to Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Pregnancy and the Americans with Disabilities Act, Pregnancy and the FMLA, what are employer’s duty in relations to accommodation, leave and assignments, safety and how to educate and monitor manager so that the complaints can be avoided and you create better workplace for pregnant employees.
