The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a final rule on 4/15/24 to implement the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA).  The act provides clarifications and offers a number of examples of reasonable accommodations which will help employers understand their responsibilities under the law.  The PWFA requires most employers with 15 or more employees to provide "reasonable accommodations" for employee's known limitations related to pregnancy and childbirth.  The final rule will be published in the Federal Register on April 19th.
