Floor Schedule and Procedure:

Complete Consideration of H.R. 1065 – Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (Rep. Nadler – Education and Labor)

This bill would require public sector employers and private employers with more than 15 employees make reasonable accommodations for job applicants and workers with known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions – so no worker would have to choose between financial security and a healthy pregnancy. These reasonable accommodations include simple changes such as appropriate seating, water breaks, closer parking, flexible hours, appropriately sized uniforms and safety apparel, bathroom breaks, and excusing pregnant workers from strenuous activities. Under this legislation, pregnant workers could not be denied employment opportunities, retaliated against for requesting reasonable accommodation, or be forced to take paid or unpaid leave if another reasonable accommodation is available.

The Rule provides for one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by the Chair and Ranking Member of the Committee on Education and Labor.
