Pregnancy discrimination is illegal in the United States

Women who are pregnant or have newborns face unique challenges. Some of these challenges can affect the woman while she is at work. Just last week, we discussed how women who are breastfeeding are afforded special protections so they can pump milk at work for the baby. That is only one small facet of the protections that women have.

What rights do breastfeeding moms have to express milk at work?

Going back to work after you have a baby is a challenge for most women. That challenging time often comes with a variety of questions and concerns. For mothers who breastfeed, being able to take breaks to pump milk is one of those concerns. Since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act went into law, employers have to follow certain guidelines set by the amendment to the Fair Labor Standards Act Section 7.

All employment contracts are important

Employment contracts serve very important purposes for the employer and employee. In our previous post, we discussed nondisclosure agreements. Those are only one type of employment contract that employees and employers might sign. There are several other types, including some that have to do with pay and some that have to do with competitors, that might be used in business.

Nondisclosure agreement points should be clear

Going through the hiring process for a new job sometimes entails having to sign a variety of papers. Some of these papers might be contracts or agreements. It is vital that these documents protect not only the employer but also the employee. One of the possible forms that might be required is the nondisclosure agreement.
