Pregnancy Non-Discrimination & Accommodation Compliance Toolkit
Federal law and many state laws, like the Massachusetts Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, make it clear that discrimination based upon pregnancy, child birth, or related medical conditions is a form of sex discrimination. In general terms, these laws prohibit covered employers from discriminating on the basis of pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, and they require covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to pregnant or lactating employees.
To achieve compliance, employers should update their personnel practices and policies and provide notice of these policies. We will work with you to tailor a compliant plan that takes into account your organization’s unique situation. We will provide you with:
- a notice to be provided to employees in accordance with the new law,
- a Pregnancy Accommodation Policy that can stand alone or be added to an existing employee handbook, and
- a Breastfeeding Accommodation Policy that can stand alone or be added to your existing handbook.
All of our services are protected by attorney-client privilege and are indemnified.
