On April 19, 2024, after receiving over 100,000 public comments on the proposed regulations, the EEOC published its final regulations and Interpretative Guidance implementing the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA). Taking effect June 18, 2024, the final regulations clarify and expand upon an employer's obligation to provide reasonable accommodations under the PWFA. Thus, it is critical employers familiarize themselves with the final regulations and the examples therein to ensure a better understanding of their obligations and how the EEOC will be interpreting and enforcing the PWFA in specific cases.

During this 60-minute webinar, Littler attorneys Rocio Blanco Garcia and Lauren Robertson will cover how the final regulations differ from the proposed regulations and the PWFA's similarities, but yet significant departure in the interactive process and reasonable accommodation practices under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Rocio and Lauren will walk through several real-life scenarios covering the following issues:

  • What is meant by the terms “known limitation," “related to pregnancy," “qualified," “temporary," and “in the near future"
  • Permissible request for medical documentation
  • Per se reasonable accommodations for pregnancy related conditions
  • Interaction of the PWFA and other federal laws that may apply to employees affected by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, including the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the PUMP Act

Additionally, Stephanie Zielinski, Marketing Director of ComplianceHR, will walk you through PolicySmart™ and the Reference Center. These solutions can help you simplify the complexity of employment law and make your compliance strategy become proactive instead of reactive.
