New Resources on Pregnancy and Lactation Rights

Pregnancy and Lactation PRresentation

Missouri NEA has developed two new resources that explain the legal rights of individuals related to pregnancy and lactation.  For those who just want a basic FAQ, there is a basic explanation designed so that anyone should be able to understand what rights they have (soon to appear on the Legal Q&A page of mnea.org and available here).

For individuals who prefer a more interactive explanation, they can use this automated Prezi that includes a full voice-over presentation on pregnancy and lactation rights.  The entire presentation only takes about 7 minutes and addresses not only rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act, but also the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and Family Medical Leave Act.  Either way you choose, Missouri NEA makes it easy to learn about your legal rights!
