The Commission's Pregnancy and Employment Rights Posters provide a concise summary of protections against illegal firing or other actions for pregnant women under the NYC Human Rights Law. The Posters contain examples of reasonable accommodations that a woman can request from her employer during the course of her pregnancy.
Effective January 30, 2014, a new amendment to the NYC Human Rights Law requires employers to provide written notice to their employees regarding the right to be free from discrimination in relation to pregnancy, childbirth, and a related medical condition. The Commission has created Pregnancy and Employment Rights posters to satisfy the requirement.
