Webinar: Providing Supportive and Compliant Pregnancy Accommodations
Employees who are pregnant or breastfeeding face the challenge of juggling the demands of their job with preparing and caring for a baby. This can lead to them feeling added stress, which can take a heavy toll on their mental and physical health.
Employers can take action to promote a positive work environment and support employees who are pregnant or breastfeeding with supportive policies and practices. At the same time, employers need to comply with the federal and state requirements for providing leave and other accommodations to pregnant and lactating employees.
In this 60-minute webinar, attorney Stephen Zashin, co-managing partner at Zashin & Rich and head of the firm's Employment and Labor Groups, discusses the basics of the Americans With Disabilities Act, The Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and their purpose in regards to pregnancy and post-pregnancy. He also focuses on leading practices that your organization can follow to support employees as they adjust to integrate their working life with their life preparing for and raising a new child. In this webinar, you learn:
- The interplay between federal and state laws on pregnancy accommodation;
- An employer's responsibilities in providing lactation accommodations;
- When FMLA, the ADA and state workers' compensation laws apply;
- And more!
