Federal legislation increase protections for expectant and nursing mothers at work
Recent changes to federal laws have increased protections for working women who are pregnant or nursing.
Employers are no longer permitted to treat unborn or recently-expired employees differently.
Additionally, they must offer all required reasonable accommodations,
such as additional breaks and private breastfeeding spaces, to workers who are expecting or nursing.
Pregnant and nursing employees now feel more secure in their jobs because to these reforms.
It enables individuals to carry on working without worrying about receiving unjust treatment because of their medical condition, which will ultimately increase job satisfaction and output.
The implementation of these new regulations also ensures that moms can conveniently nurse whenever they desire without worrying about interfering with their professional obligations.
