Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast—"Breaking Down the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act"

It’s episode 53 of Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast, hosted by Ari Kwiatkowski. Listeners will get the early scoop on what is known so far about this new federal antidiscrimination law that provides guidelines for employers and information for employees. Hear Ari speak about how the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) fits in with, and differs from, other federal antidiscrimination statutes, like the Americans With Disabilities Act and Title VII. Basically, it requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to pregnant workers due to pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions. The law, enforced by the EEOC, will be in effect around mid-June of this year, so listen to get some early examples of how the PWFA may affect your business or workplace.
