September 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join HMHBGA, 9to5, and A Better Balance for a discussion on how to improve workplace accommodations for pregnant and nursing moms, including the Pregnancy Workers Fairness Act.
We will discuss:
• reasonable workplace accommodations for pregnant and postpartum mothers
• barriers to employment opportunities such as lack of reasonable accommodations
• and more
About 70% of Georgia women of child-bearing age are in the workforce. Yet, there are no state-level laws in Georgia that guide workplace accommodations for employees during the pregnancy and the postpartum period. Currently, 30 states nationwide have instituted legislation to ensure women have access to such accommodations.
