The laws regarding pregnancy and employment can be confusing and are often misunderstood. Via the NYT, the group A Better Balance has put together Babygate, a free, easy-to-use, state-by-state online resource for working parents and soon-to-be parents.
Know your rights regarding pregnancy discrimination, paid and unpaid family leave, temporary disability insurance, breastfeeding, and more. The guide also breaks things down into the periods when you are pregnant, leaving work, and returning to work.
There is also a book which helps with “managing the realities of parenthood at work, from handling morning sickness, to figuring out maternity leave, to securing time and space to pump breast milk.”
