Implementing Workplace Protections for Pregnant or Lactating Personnel

The Pregnant Workers Fairness (PWFA) and Providing Urgent Maternal Protections (PUMP) Acts were signed into law by President Biden on December 29, 2022. PWFA requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations for an employee’s known limitations correlated with pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, unless doing so will cause the employer an undue hardship; while the PUMP Act expands workplace protections for lactating employees and requires employers to provide reasonable break time and private space for personnel to express milk while at work. On August 7, 2023, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for implementing the PWFA’s protections for pregnant workers, and the resulting Rules were published on April 19.  

Please join us for this 2-hour webinar in which experienced NACUA member-panelists will cover topics, including:   

  • An overview of the PWFA; 
  • An overview of the PUMP Act; 
  • Implications of the EEOC’s new rules around the PWFA’s protections for pregnant workers; and 
  • Implementing these significant changes in the support for pregnant and parenting personnel. 

Who should attend?

This webinar will interest in-house and outside counsel to colleges and universities, senior human resources personnel, and those tasked with implementing campus accommodations.
