Reasonable Accommodations for Pregnant Women in NYC
Employment Attorneys Serving Northern and Central New Jersey
As a brief follow up to my October 16 blog posting, New York City also passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, requiring NYC employers (with at least 4 employees) to grant reasonable accommodations to their pregnant employees. See N.Y.C. Admin. Code 8-107(22). Not only are employers required to grant reasonable accommodations that would not be an undue hardship or prevent an employee from satisfying the "essential requisites" of their job, but they also must notify their employees of these new rights, in writing, by May 30, 2014.
