First Shift Justice Project’s first initiative is to empower and support pregnant women and new parents.
We go to the places where women are already seeking prenatal care and provide them with the information and assistance they need to assert their workplace rights, including: the right to paid and unpaid job-protected leave; the right to paid sick days; the right to be free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of gender, pregnancy or family responsibilities; the right to reasonable accommodations; and the right to breastfeed.
If you need legal assistance regarding a work and family related legal issue, find out more about our legal services here.
If you are (or work for) a health care provider in Washington, DC, sign up for a 15-minute training session on the new pregnancy accommodations law in DC. Sign up for our Training Session
