Navigating the New Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (EYL240220)

Tuesday, February 20, 2024

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time)

Webinar - CLE Pass Eligible

Presented by the Young Lawyers Section as Part of the Bridge the Gap Series

About the Program

This seminar will take you through the history of protections afforded to pregnant workers and how the recently enacted Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) adds to those protections.  Our speakers will address how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission proposes to regulate the recently enacted PWFA, steps employers should take in order to comply, and the new protections pregnant workers can expect from the PWFA.  Although recently enacted, our speakers will discuss real life examples and comparative cases in other jurisdictions.

You Will Learn

  • The history of protections before the PWFA
  • How the PWFA adds to the protections that already existed and new obligations under the law
  • How the EEOC may implement the PWFA through a discussion of the EEOC’s proposed regulations
  • How employers can expect to comply with the new PWFA and how the PWFA adds protections for pregnant workers
  • How to apply the PWFA in real life through a discussion of case studies

Who Should Attend

Attorneys who practice labor and employment law, whether they typically represent plaintiffs or defendants, as well as attorneys who manage their own firms or are in-house providing employment law advice.
