Millions of pregnant workers will now gain expanded protections under a new law.

The law bars employers from discriminating against pregnant women and requires companies to provide accommodations, so they can keep doing their jobs while they’re expecting.

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is aimed at promoting women’s health and economic well-being, so they don’t have to choose between their paychecks and their health.
