Gov. Lee last summer signed into law Public Chapter 745, known as the Tennessee Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. The PWFA took effect on Oct. 1, 2020, and requires covered employers to engage in the interactive process and evaluate reasonable accommodation requests for employees who have “medical needs arising from pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.” How does the PWFA fill gaps left open by Title VII and the ADA? Edward G. Phillips and Brandon L. Morrow answer that question and more in their new TBJ column, "The Law at Work."
