All my pregnant ladies! All my pregnant ladies!

Pregnancy just got a little bit sweeter for New Jersey employees. Aside from having that “pregnancy glow” and the joy of knowing that you are bringing life into the world, expecting mothers now have the right to reasonable accommodation in New Jersey. A new New (yeah, Mircrosoft word, I did mean to say new twice) Jersey law reinforces the already strong New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJ LAD) and states that employers must offer reasonable accommodations for pregnant employees (as well as new mothers) and cannot discriminate against an employee for pregnancy related reasons. Go moms!
