California is at the forefront in developing laws which protect the status of pregnant and lactating women in the workplace. California law expands far beyond the federal law when it comes to the protection of pregnant women and conditions relating to pregnancy and lactating. We have at least six separate pieces of legislation unique to California which address the leave and accommodation needs of pregnant women, as well as paid and unpaid parental leave. You need to be familiar with each of them, and this course will help you to do that.
