Protecting Pregnant Workers Notice


The Office of Human Rights has issued a revised notice regarding The Protecting Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PPWFA). The notice must be posted in the workplace in a conspicuous place. Employers must also provide employees with notice of the law within 10 days of an employee notifying them of their pregnancy or related condition.

As a reminder, the PPWFA requires District employers of all sizes to provide reasonable accommodation for employees whose ability to perform job duties is limited because of pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or a related medical condition. Reasonable accommodations include unpaid time off, modifying work equipment, providing more frequent or longer breaks and modifying work schedules.
