On Monday, April 10th at 3:00 PM EST, A Better Balance hosted a webinar discussing the newly passed federal Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act, two landmark federal laws that will make a world of difference for millions of pregnant, postpartum, and lactating workers.
The webinar was geared towards state and local partners and allies in the gender & women’s rights, racial justice, economic justice, maternal and infant health, labor, and social services spaces (among others!) and covered:
- what these two new laws mean for workers who need reasonable accommodations to stay safe and healthy on the job;
- why these protections are so important;
- how they will interact with other federal, state and local laws; and
- what lies ahead in ensuring these laws are implemented and enforced effectively.
