Duty to Reasonably Accommodate: The ADA, Pregnancy, and FMLA in 2023
When an employee asks for an accommodation, sometimes the business may need to take steps to explore whether it is feasible to provide such an accommodation. In this session, designed for business owners and Human Resources professionals, you will learn how the duty to “reasonably accommodate” focuses on disabilities, FMLA leave and even pregnancy. The law recently changed regarding pregnancy, and employers obligations are significantly more burdensome now.
The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) takes effect from 27th June 2023, requiring covered employers to offer reasonable accommodations to pregnant workers. The PUMP Act asks employees to inform their employer of non-compliance and provide a 10-day window for the employer to address the issues, making management training now more important than ever. It is crucial for employers and managers to be trained as the PUMP Act Enforcement and PWFA effective dates approach.
