Over the past five years, A Better Balance has been working closely on this legislation. We are thrilled that the Kentucky legislature has taken this important step forward in ensuring that no one has to choose between her job and a healthy pregnancy.
Since our founding, A Better Balance has fought day in and day out for pregnant workers. 2018 was no different.
We are heartened by today’s developments: not only has XPO Logistics announced that going forward it will work with pregnant employees who need accommodations to stay healthy and on the job but Congress is poised to move the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act.
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.
