Pregnancy Accommodations Bill Now Law (Effective Immediately)

    January 24, 2014

    Just before the end of the 215th Legislative Session, Governor Christie signed into law S-2995 (Weinberg) / A-4486 (Lampitt, Johnson) which provides that pregnant workers cannot be treated in a manner less favorable than other workers not affected by pregnancy, but similar in their ability or inability to work. Among its provisions, the law explicitly adds pregnancy to the list of protected classes named in the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination. The law takes effect immediately.  Please see the Legislative Affairs section for further details.
