Massachusetts Governor Baker just signed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act bill into law, which will impose many new legal obligations on employers with pregnant employees. While the new amendments create greater protections for pregnant workers, they also create new and greater responsibilities on employers. Now, healthy pregnancies will be treated in a fashion more akin to disability discrimination. Employers are now required to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with healthy, complication-free pregnancies.
Are you prepared? If an employee becomes pregnant, do you know what you are required to do? If not, Royal, P.C.’s workshop on the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is for you.
The new law greatly expands employer obligations on Massachusetts anti-discrimination laws, but many of these obligations are still unclear. Attorney Daniel C. Carr will present on a variety of topics, including:
- Steps to take prior to the implementation of the new law
- Legal obligations of employers
- Reasonable Accommodations
- Dos and Don’ts
- Defending against an alleged violation
Who should attend? HR professionals, CFOs, CEOs, and anyone in a management position who is responsible for overseeing employees.
