New York City Litigators Handling Complex Employment Matters
The coronavirus pandemic has presented substantial challenges for employers and employees alike. Many employers have had to change their workplaces or provide reasonable accommodations to pregnant employees. Pregnant women are at higher risk of hospitalization and severe illness from COVID-19 than are women of the same age who are not pregnant. In most cases, babies do not get sick; the virus rarely crosses from the mother to the baby in utero. However, there are still questions surrounding the transmission of COVID-19. If you are pregnant and afraid to come to work during the pandemic because of your baby, your fears are justified. You should consult the New York City pregnancy discrimination lawyers at Phillips & Associates.
