October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Even though domestic violence may happen at home, there are often negative ramifications at work. Some states provide legal protections at work for workers who are the victims of domestic violence. Workplace Fairness provides easy to read information on domestic violence and the workplace on our Domestic Violence page.

Workplace Fairness is committed to educating the American workforce about their rights in the workplace and how to protect and enforce them. Get information about issues in the workplace like harassment, discrimination, unpaid wages and more at Workplace Fairness.

Under the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, a company must treat pregnant employees “the same as non-pregnant employees who are similar in their ability or inability to work,” according to the nonprofit Workplace Fairness. Expecting mothers may also be entitled to accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act if they develop a pregnancy-related health condition.
