Adams and Reese Partner Margaret Myers will lead a complimentary, one-hour CLE webinar to discuss Workplace Accommodations and Protections for Pregnant and Nursing Mothers: New Federal Law Requirement as of June 2023.
Myers will advise employment counsel and HR Generalists on the two recently-enacted federal landmark pieces of civil rights legislation for pregnant and nursing mothers in the workplace: the PWFA and the PUMP Act.
This webinar will highlight issues relating to the new federal mandate, provide an update on the interplay of important federal and state laws, and outline practical implications for employment counsel when advising clients with respect to key accommodations and protections in the modern workplace.
Several additional issues will be covered:
- What steps should counsel take to ensure compliance with the PWFA and PUMP Act?
- What issues have not been resolved or remain ambiguous and what advice should be offered to clients for purposes of the PWFA and PUMP Act?
- What are best employment practices when navigating the new laws to avoid costly pregnancy-related lawsuits?
