We are so close! So far, over eighty-eight Representatives have co-sponsored the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. This bill would ensure that pregnant women are treated fairly on the job.

Help us reach 100 co-sponsors by the end of the week by emailing your Representative today! The more co-sponsors on this bill, the more likely it is to get moving!

So what’s the problem? Courts have created a pregnancy loophole that allows many employers to refuse to accommodate even simple requests to help workers maintain healthy pregnancies. Pregnant women have been fired because they asked to avoid heavy lifting, or to stay off ladders, or to sit on a stool instead of standing at a cash register all day.

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act would change this. It would require employers to make the same sorts of reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions that they do for disabilities, ensuring pregnant women can continue to do their jobs and support their families.

The bottom line is that this is a common sense piece of legislation that needs our support. A woman should never have to choose between the health of her pregnancy and her job. That’s not a choice at all.

Please help us reach 100 co-sponsors by the end of the week by contacting your Representative. Make sure your Representative is on the list!
