#118 New Bill Provides Protection Against the Discrimination of Pregnant Women

featuring Patrice Lee Onwuka

In the next couple of week's you'll hear a lot about women in the workplace. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act, passed forty years ago, rightly bars discriminatory treatment against women who become pregnant. However, because of the law's confusing and ambiguous language, it is not clear how employers can comply with the law or what the accommodation requirements are. There is an effort by Congress to clarify the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and protect pregnant workers from discrimination and ensure that pregnant women receive fair treatment in the workplace, all without creating new laws or limiting women's economic opportunities. Hear more about it in this podcast with Congressman Walberg.
