Know Your Rights: Pregnancy and Work

Authored By: Legal Voice

The Healthy Starts Act is a new Washington State law that gives many pregnant workers the right to accommodations at work related to bathroom breaks, food and drink, heavy lifting, sitting/standing, and other accommodations as needed. “Accommodation” here means a change to your workday that you have asked for to allow for physical needs while you are pregnant. ​
