      PDA, ADA, and FMLA. How to Manage Requests for Light Duty, Leave, Transfer, and More

      The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

      Today, employees who are pregnant or new parents have many protections and rights in the workplace. If a woman is temporarily unable to perform her job due to a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth, the employer must treat her situation in the same way as it treats any other temporarily disabled employee.

      Additionally, impairments resulting from pregnancy may even be disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Barring an undue hardship, an employer may have to provide a reasonable accommodation.

      It is also unlawful to harass a woman because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth and harassment for pregnancy related conditions is not always as obvious.

      Pregnant employees may also have rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

      It is critical that an employer have a full understanding of ALL their obligations towards pregnant employees. Including not retaliating towards employees who seek to avail themselves of their rightfully afforded protections.

      Why should you Attend:
      It is important to know what obligations an employer may be required to provide pregnant employees. It is also important to know not just what an employer is required to do, but how to treat employees, including how an employer is required to structure and handle situations as they arise.Supervisors are one of the most critical parts of handling pregnant employee's job requirements properly.

      Some Supervisors left on their own to interpret obligations, do not administer an employer's accountabilities in the correct manner. Employees are also protected from retaliation when requests, even complaints are made regarding an employer's treatment of a pregnant employee or in regards to an employer not fulfilling their obligations towards an employee correctly.
