This bill would require employers to post a notice of employee rights and authorize the Department of Labor to administer and enforce the Alabama Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
Relating to unlawful employment practices; to create the Alabama Pregnant Workers Fairness Act to provide workplace protections against pregnancy discrimination and related medical conditions; to add Chapter 15 to Title 25, Code of Alabama 1975; and to amend Sections 25-2-2 and 25-2-7, Code of Alabama 1975.
