Ringing in the New?:Pregnancy Discrimination and Pregnancy-Related Leaves

January 2008
Employment Law Notes
In recent months, the Washington Supreme Court clarified state anti-discrimination laws and regulations regarding hiring and employment of pregnant women. Protections for pregnant women are also part of Washington and federal laws that allow leaves for pregnancy-related conditions and newborn childcare. Now is a good time to review your policies and procedures to ensure that you are following the most recent guidance from the Court and complying with state and federal leave laws.
