The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) requires the Postal Service to provide reasonable accommodations to known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, unless the accommodation will cause the employer an “undue hardship.”

Examples of possible reasonable accommodations include:

  • The ability to sit or drink water;
  • Receive closer parking;
  • Have flexible hours;
  • Receive appropriately sized uniforms and safety apparel;
  • Receive additional break time to use the bathroom, eat, and rest;
  • Take leave or time off to recover from childbirth;
  • Be excused from strenuous activities and/or activities that involve exposure to compounds not safe for pregnancy.
