From PWFA to the PUMP Act:
Applying New Rules Affecting Pregnant
and Post-Partum Federal Employees
Presented by Debra D'Agostino, Esq.
Wednesday | September 25, 2024 • 12 - 1:30 p.m. ET


In the past few months, the EEOC issued the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act final regulations and several important case decisions under Title VII of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. Attend this live virtual training with attorney Debra D’Agostino to find out what you need to know and do to comply with these two laws and their regulations, as well as the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act.

You’ll explore reasonable accommodation as it applies to pregnant employees and get examples of potential accommodations the EEOC considers to be simple. You’ll also learn the scope of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and how it applies today, including regarding fertility treatment, miscarriage, and abortion.

Guide your agency to avoid compliance missteps by learning how to: .

  • Determine when a pregnant employee is entitled to reasonable accommodation under the PWFA through proper use of the interactive process
  • Identify and properly address pregnancy and childbirth-based harassment
  • Evaluate whether agency policies related to lactating employees comply with the PUMP Act and other relevant laws
  • Help your agency avoid successful claims of pregnancy and birth-related discrimination by knowing where other agencies erred
  • And more

The training includes interactive Q&A, so you can get Ms. D’Agostino’s expert guidance on the new situations and unfamiliar mandates you face under these laws.
