Tell the Senate to Pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act!
No expecting parent should have to choose between the health and safety of their pregnancy and their ability to stay in the workforce, but unfortunately that is a reality in many places in this country. However, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, would address this by establishing essential workplace protections which guarantee reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers. Workers, families, and communities will thrive when ALL pregnant workers are guaranteed common-sense accommodations like having a water bottle on hand, sitting down on occasion, or staying off ladders for the duration of their pregnancy. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act passed the House last year with bipartisan support so now it’s up to the Senate. The bill will help to protect the health and economic security of pregnant workers and help them stay in the workforce to provide for their growing families, particularly during these challenging economic times.
