Due Date: Philadelphia Employers Must Post Notice Regarding Reasonable Accommodations for Pregnant Workers by April 20, 2014

As we reported on February 16, 2014, Philadelphia now requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for pregnant employees. The amended Philadelphia Fair Practices Ordinance also requires Philadelphia employers to provide written notice to employees of the new pregnancy accommodation requirement. The form and manner of the Notice was to be determined by the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations (“PCHR”).

On March 28, 2014, the PCHR released the form of Notice to be used. This Notice must be conspicuously posted in an area accessible to employees by April 20, 2014. The Notice is available on the PCHR’s website at http://www.phila.gov/HumanRelations/PDF/pregnancy_poster.pdf
