This bill would pass the Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act in Alabama, which would provide workplace protections against pregnancy discrimination and related medical conditions.
We support this bill. Although Congress outlawed pregnancy discrimination in 1978, far too many employers still routinely deny pregnant workers the temporary job modifications they need to keep working and have a healthy pregnancy. These requests for “accommodations” — such as more frequent breaks, schedule changes, and reassignment of hazardous tasks — often are denied to pregnant workers, and can result in severe consequences for their health and financial security.
