House Passes Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

HeadlineSep 18, 2020

The House of Representatives has passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, requiring U.S. employers to make reasonable accommodations to people who are pregnant. Over 100 Republicans joined majority Democrats in Thursday’s roll call. Labor rights advocates are demanding Republicans take up the bill in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell remains focused on pushing through Trump’s judicial nominees — eight of whom have been confirmed this week to lifetime appointments on the federal bench.
