House Approves Bill Seeking More Accommodations for Pregnant Employees


The Illinois House has approved a bill that would require businesses to make “reasonable accommodations” for pregnant employees.

 

Democratic Representative Mary Flowers’ bill would mandate that employers allow frequent bathroom breaks, less strenuous physical duties, and work schedule adjustments during the pregnancy.

 

Opponents say the bill goes even beyond what’s required in federal law and will put too much of a burden on small employers. The bill now goes to the Senate.
