Teeter-Tottering between Work and Babies:  Pregnancy and Childcare Issues in the Workplace

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Deirdre Kamber Todd



Webinar Description

Work-life balance is the elephant in the room when it comes to discrimination law.  There is no neat, one-size-fits-all family responsibility discrimination law.  More than seventeen legal theories cover “caretaker” employment discrimination.


Employers need to be able to contend with the important legal issues relating to requests for accommodation for pregnant workers and employees with childcare problems.  From pregnancy planning to childcare, various federal laws have an important impact on issues relating to workers and their families.  From the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 20019 (ARRA), which made changes to the federal wage and hour law that affects workers with infant children, to the FMLA, with its different standards for parental leave depending on whether or not the parents are married, the laws that affect work-life balance are broad and difficult to navigate.

Join employment lawyer Deirdre Kamber Todd as she explains how many laws affect your employment of pregnant workers and parents of young children and gives you practical tips on how you can comply with all of them.
