A new law aims to better protect pregnant and postpartum workers

It requires employers to provide “reasonable accommodations” for pregnant and postpartum workers — for instance, providing chairs for people who are on their feet all day.
Before the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act went into effect, the only way for pregnant people to get an accommodation was to have a pregnancy-related disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
