A Better Balance is proud to follow the lead of BMMA and their incredible partners in dismantling systemic racism and fighting for equitable policies and systems of care that allow all Black mothers to thrive.
We will be monitoring this case closely in the months ahead, as we work to ensure that no woman is forced to choose between her economic security and a healthy pregnancy.
This is a major victory for pregnant workers at Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer! No longer should pregnant workers like our clients, Kaitlyn and Leigha, be punished for seeking urgent pregnancy-related medical care.
Since our founding, A Better Balance has fought day in and day out for pregnant workers. 2018 was no different.
We've been joining forces with workers to put an end to pregnancy discrimination at Verizon distribution centers. However, company-by-company change is not enough. It's time for Congress to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act.

This week, we mark the 40th anniversary of the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act, a law we hoped would end pregnancy discrimination. While the law has been transformative in many respects, unfortunately, pregnancy discrimination is shockingly still prevalent in American workplaces.
It’s unacceptable that, under the law, many pregnant workers in 2018 aren’t able to get the immediate relief they need to stay healthy and on the job. Every pregnant worker in America deserves a clear right to accommodation.
