Desperate to get her job back, Takirah asked her doctor to remove her lifting restriction. He refused, and instead provided her with information about pregnant workers’ right to receive reasonable accommodations under the New Jersey Pregnant Workers Fairness Act—a law that A Better Balance worked hard to pass.
On the heels of the release of A Better Balance’s new report “Long Overdue,” U.S. Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), John Katko (R-N.Y.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-W.A.), Lucy McBath (D-G.A.), and Bobby Scott (D-VA) today introduced the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA).
