Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

While Texas offers many protections for pregnant workers, following the passage of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), another layer of protection has been added, requiring Texas employers with more than 15 employees to offer some sort of reasonable accommodations to pregnant workers with limitations on their working capabilities due to their pregnancy or childbirth.

To learn more about what reasonable accommodations Manhattan and New York City businesses might provide, what other federal or state regulations might apply to pregnant workers, or what legal options you might have if you were subjected to pregnancy-related discrimination, please visit our subpage on the topic here.
