SB 342 would grant pregnant and lactating workers the right to reasonable accommodations on the job. Unfortunately, in Indiana today, some women, especially those in low-wage or physically demanding positions, are still pushed off the job or forced onto leave when all they need is a small work modification, such as a place to sit or a water bottle. A pregnant worker accommodation law would facilitate healthy pregnancies and healthy babies, promote the economic security of women and their families, provide clear expectations for employers, and boost our state’s economy.

We support legislation that would protect the rights and livelihoods of pregnant workers and ensure a truly equal workplace.
