Pregnancy and Family Responsibility Discrimination, Parental Leave, and COVID-19 Complications

American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education Group [ALI CLE]

May 5, 2020
Recorded Online

Despite the existence of a myriad of laws prohibiting discrimination based on pregnancy and family responsibility, as well as ones guaranteeing parental leave, parents across the U.S. continue to encounter professional obstacles resulting from or relating to their family responsibilities. The need for more robust protections and support for parents in the workplace has become even more apparent in recent months amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the need for more robust protections for parents in the workplace, legislators at the federal and state level have been, and continue to, advocate for stronger protections for families at work.

In this webinar, we will talk about the current state of the law as it relates to pregnancy discrimination, family responsibility discrimination, and parental leave.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Overview of the common challenges working parents face
  • Discussion of state and federal legal resources that provide guidance to employee and employer obligations and opportunities
  • Where the legal patchwork falls short and how to increase support for working parents and the employers that wish to see them succeed
  • Analysis of the current case law and policy efforts addressing the gaps in the post UPS v. Young era and state pregnancy accommodation laws
  • Families First Coronavirus Response Act, overview of benefits and implementation considerations

 All registrants will receive a set of downloadable course materials to accompany the program.
