Learn About the Obligations and Prohibitions of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Understand How Employers Must Treat Expecting Employees Without Landing into Legal Trouble.

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. It recommends that pregnant employees must be treated in the same way as other employees.

'Pregnancy Discrimination' is one of the hottest and trending topics in employment law, and this session by expert speaker Gregory A. Hearing, Esq. will provider deeper insights into this topic. You will be able to explore various obligations and prohibitions of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. Understand how human resources professionals must treat expecting employees and examine the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) new guidelines on pregnancy discrimination.
