Birthing Parents: New Laws and Lexicon for Supporting Pregnant Employees in the Workplace
Join us May 23 for the next virtual breakfast briefing in our Employment Law Breakfast Series – Birthing Parents: New Laws and Lexicon for Supporting Pregnant Employees in the Workplace with Laura Rideout and Harper Weissburg.
Federal law has changed and so too have employee expectations after the pandemic caused nearly two million women to leave the labor force. Faced with new legal obligations and a tight labor market, employers want to know what they have to do to stay compliant and competitive. Ensuring that your workplace supports expecting employees through pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, reduces the potential for legal liability and improves the recruitment and retention of talent. This session will summarize the current state of the law, address some of the most common issues faced by employers, and equip participants with the tools and vocabulary to support pregnant and lactating employees in the workplace.
