Pregnancy & Caregiver Rights In the Workplace

Start 01/19/2023 - 5:30 PM
End 01/19/2023 - 6:20 PM


Pregnancy and caregiving responsibilities present unique challenges for both workers and employers. Managers must balance the need for continuity of business operations with regulations that protect expecting mothers and new parents from discrimination and retaliation.

For new moms, the stress of pregnancy is too often compounded by unlawful mistreatment from bosses who are overly concerned with their bottom line. This program will include practical guidance for employment law practitioners and in-house counsel looking to advise clients on this evolving area of the law.

This program will address topics such as:

  • The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and PUMP For Nursing Mothers Act, recently signed into law by President Biden as part of the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package
  • Parental leave requirements at the federal level and in New York
  • Reasonable accommodations requirements for pregnant employees under the New York State and City Human Rights Laws
  • Common types of caregiver-related claims and defenses

There will be ample time during the program for questions from the audience.

After the formal presentation, there will be time for members of NYCLA’s Labor and Employment Committee to network and have  a general discussion about topics of interest and issues of concern from 6:20 pm – 6:45 pm with Committee Chair Lauren Paxton and the guest speaker.
