All too often, pregnant workers—particularly those in physically-demanding and low-wage jobs—are
terminated, forced to quit, or involuntarily placed on unpaid leave because they ask for simple, reasonable, and temporary accommodations at some point during their pregnancies such as avoiding heavy lifting, being permitted to sit during a very long shift, or staying off high ladders. This fact sheet explain the stakes for women of color and immigrant women, who are disproportionately likely to work in some physically-demanding and low-wage jobs with little flexibility and thus are especially likely to need these accommodations.
