Event description

Description

Pregnant women often can’t find independent resources to understand their rights in the workplace, from how much leave they can take, to how to protect their job. Add this 90-minute seminar to your prenatal class roster and gain valuable tools for maintaining your position in the workplace, and dealing with your health insurance and medical bills.

We at Berke-Weiss Law PLLC, a woman-owned law firm, have a simple goal for the Pregnancy Project: to improve the lives of working mothers-to-be. Attendance is geared toward women in the first two trimesters of pregnancy, but the seminar is useful and open to partners, birth workers, and all parents to be.

Topics covered will include:



  • Announcing your pregnancy at work
  • Taking leave from your job
  • How to contest a medical bill
  • Asking for accommodations from your employer

  • How to obtain a free breast pump

  • How to receive paid disability during your time out of the office

  • How to enroll your child in health insurance

  • Wage and hour laws, if you are hiring help at home
