Printer-friendly version
Location:EANJ Training Room, Livingston
Sponsored by:EANJ

Both the Federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination prohibit employment discrimination based on pregnancy.  The New Jersey law requires accommodations be made in the workplace for an employee’s pregnancy-related needs.  Additionally, the NJLAD was just expanded to prohibit employers from firing or discriminating against woman who breastfeed at work.

During this session we will discuss recent legislative developments and court decisions on pregnancy and breastfeeding, including:

  • Pregnancy-related conditions – what is protected?
  • Discrimination & retaliation
  •  Reasonable accommodations
    •  Work area/schedule adjustments
    • Job restructuring or transfers
    • Light Duty
    • Breaks for nursing mothers
  • Leaves of absence
