    PCHRA invites you to join our Wage &Hour's April Meeting titled:

    "Understganding the Pregnant Worker and PUMP Acts"

    ABOUT THE EVENT:  This is part of our PCHRA 2024 Wage and Hour Learning Series. We are hosting the The Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division to provide business owners and HR professionals an understanding of the 2024 changes in wage and hour laws impacting business. 

    For this event, participants can learn and earn 1 SHRM PDC.

    About the Presentation:  This month’s session focuses on the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) and the Pump Act that went into effect last year.  Our speaker will first guide us through the PWFA.  This includes

    • its objectives and scope
    • the legal obligations it creates for employers. 

    Also, guidance on implementing the provisions of the PWFA in the workplace including practical advice on how to effectively handle accommodation requests from pregnant employees.

    Our next speaker will explore the PUMP Act, which expanded protections of the Affordable Care Act’s requirement for Break Time for Nursing Mothers.  In this section, we will learn

    • who is covered by federal pump at work protections, break time and space requirements.
    • prohibitions on retaliation.
    • resources available to both employers and employees. 

    Real world examples and solutions to common issues facing workers and employers will be presented. At the end of the session, attendees will understand workplace protections for pregnant and nursing workers and the remedies available to them.
