EEOC Webinar: Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA)
The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) took effect on June 27, 2023. This new law requires covered employers to provide “reasonable accommodations” to a worker’s known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, unless the accommodation will cause the employer an “undue hardship”.
The EEOC recently published a webinar for employers pertaining to the PWFA, so managers and supervisors are prepared to handle accommodation requests: EEOC’s Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. What Employers Need to Know Webinar.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact your dedicated AdvanStaff HR Specialist with any questions or for additional PWFA resources.
