Training that educates employees and employers on the rights of pregnant workers, as well as programs that promote empathy and understanding about the challenges pregnant employees might face, can be effective. This can be combined with awareness campaigns showcasing positive stories of employees during and post-pregnancy.
Under the NJLAD, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnant employees if requested, with advice from a physician. This can include women with high-risk pregnancies. Such accommodations might include more frequent breaks, modified work schedules, or temporary reassignments.
