Pregnancy and Childbirth Should Not Be Used Against Women In Work Injury Claims

Pregnancy and Childbirth Should Not Be Used Against Women In Work Injury Claims

Women injured at work have many unique issues related to their disability and apportionment related matters. All workers’ compensation attorneys and their client should be aware and cautious how doctors and other professionals address these issues. Congratulations to Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher for introducing Assembly Bill 570 which aims to prevent pregnancy, childbirth – or conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth – from being used against workers when addressing apportionment and the cause of disability in a workers’ compensation claim.
