On March 3, 2016, the District of Columbia (DC) council enacted DC Act 21-324, which extends temporary provisions of the DC law to permit time off as a reasonable accommodation for pre-birth complications. The law is meant to protect employees who are absent from work because of such pre-birth complications or other pregnancy-related conditions. The extension is temporary, taking effect on April 20, 2016, and expiring on Dec. 1, 2016. Employers should work with outside counsel in developing and implementing their leave policies to meet the DC rules for pregnant employees.
