Those of you who receive my updates are, hopefully, aware that employer’s must provide written notice of their right to be free from discrimination based on medical needs arising from pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions to all new employees upon the commencement of their employment. (Act 393, which you can find here https://legis.la.gov/legis/ViewDocument.aspx?d=1235882).
Act 393 becomes effective on August 1, 2021. This means that employers must provide the written notice to all new employees hired on or after August 1, 2021. Employers have until December 1, 2021, to provide the same written notice to existing employees.
Don’t hesitate to contact me directly if you need assistance in creating the notice required by Act 393 or if you have any questions.
