HR Works Podcast: Get Your Workforce PWFA-Ready! (Part 2) – Reasonable Accommodation

Guest: Paige Hoster Good, Attorney and Shareholder with McAfee & Taft

What constitute as “reasonable accommodations” under the newly proposed Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) regulations? What steps are employers required to take when a qualified employee requests accommodation for a “known limitation” due to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition?

Our coverage around the PWFA continues, as McAfee & Taft’s Paige Hoster Good joins the HR Works Podcast to discuss the EEOC’s recently proposed regulations that are currently subject to a 60-day comment period, ending on October 10, 2023.  An expert in employment law, Paige shares what employers and HR teams need to be aware of in the current regulation proposal and breaks down the PWFA’s interpretive guidance on employer responsibilities.
