  • The District of Columbia joined Delaware, Illinois, West Virginia and Maryland by enacting legislation to give additional protections to pregnant workers. On October 24, 2014, the District of Columbia enacted the “Protecting Pregnant Workers Fairness Act of 2014” (PPWFA or the Act). Provided that Congress does not disapprove of the PPWFA, the PPWFA will become effective sometime in late 2014.
