There’s a great new online resource – Pregnant@Work – that we’ll be adding to our sidebar of useful HR Resources. The site offers tools and educational information about accommodating pregnant women at work. The website was created as an initiative of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. The members of the Pregnancy Accommodation Working Group who compiled the site include employment lawyers, professors and scholars, healthcare professionals, social workers, unions, non-profit organizations, and government officials.
The site offers workplace pregnancy accommodation information and resources for:
- Healthcare professionals
- Pregnant Women
- Attorneys – both for plaintiffs and for management
The employer section covers a variety of useful resources:
- Compliance resources: Links to ensure your company is in compliance with the federal laws related to pregnancy accommodation and pregnancy discrimination
- Pregnancy Accommodation Update For Employers Webinar Replay – a 75 minute webinar to “help HR professionals, managers, and legal counsel chart a course through the tangle of state accommodation laws, the amendment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Supreme Court’s Pregnancy Discrimination Act decision in Young v. UPS, and the EEOC’s pregnancy discrimination guidance. The presenter, Cynthia Thomas Calvert of Workforce 21C, will provide practical tips for managing pregnant workers and reducing exposure to lawsuits.”
