Pregnancy Accommodations: 50-State Chart Renamed and Reorganized
Author: XpertHR Editorial Team
At XpertHR, we continually improve our tools and resources to meet the needs of HR professionals and enhance the XpertHR user experience. Over the last several years, a number of states and municipalities have expanded their respective pregnancy discrimination laws by requiring employers to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions. To help employers comply with these state and local pregnancy accommodation laws, XpertHR has renamed the Pregnancy Discrimination and Accommodation Laws by State 50-State Chart to Pregnancy Accommodation Laws by State and Municipality and made the following changes:
- Limited the chart's focus to pregnancy accommodation laws; and
- Enhanced the chart with key municipal coverage.
The chart continues to provide information on employer coverage, examples of accommodations and notice requirements, as well as links to relevant employee handbook statements XpertHR has in its Employee Handbooks tool. Further, information regarding pregnancy discrimination laws is still located in the EEO Protected Classes by State and Municipality 50-State Chart.
