We Support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

The Senate today introduced the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which would allow pregnant women “reasonable accommodations” while at work. Currently, unless a pregnancy involves unusual complications, pregnant women are not entitled to protections under the ADA. This means that women can be fired for needing even small pregnancy-related accommodations, like needing to drink water on the job. This law would change that, and recognize that women shouldn’t have to choose between having a healthy pregnancy and keeping her job. Write your Senator, and ask him or her to support the bill.
