Description

Moms-to-be get tons of advice on strollers, sleep training, and post-baby workouts. What they don't get is straight talk about navigating the workplace during pregnancy and new parenthood - factors that put many women's jobs in jeopardy. That's why Babygate is essential: the first and only guide to supply parents with the tools they need to keep their jobs.

Babygate breaks down the laws on topics across the parenthood spectrum in clear, conversational language, and includes a state-by-state guide so readers know exactly how they're protected (or not) in their hometowns. Best of all, Babygate includes a road map for confronting family-responsibilities discrimination, and a concrete plan for creating a more family-friendly nation.

In Babygate, three legal experts share practical tips, real-life stories from moms and dads, and key legal information to spotlight the protections expecting and new parents have (and don't have) in the workplace. This step-by-step guide covers everything from morning sickness to maternity leave to confronting discrimination on the job. Includes quizzes, charts, checklists, sample letters to employers, and a comprehensive breakdown of individual state laws on pregnancy, parenthood, and the workplace.

Dina Bakst, Phoebe Taubman, and Elizabeth Gedmark are attorneys for A Better Balance, a legal center created to advance the rights of pregnant women and caregivers in the American workplace. A Better Balance's legislative advocacy - paired with litigation, research, public education, and technical assistance to state and local advocates - has generated new protections for millions of workers across the country.

        September 1, 2014
        At the start of this how-to guide, Bakst, Taubman, and Gedmark, legal experts for workplace fairness advocacy group A Better Balance, announce that they want to reach a broader audience for the topic. Arranged in chronological order from pregnancy to parenthood, this well-organized work begins with an assessment of U.S. policy in comparison to other countries, and finds that U.S. policy is often lacking when it comes to supporting pregnancy and parenting. Bias against pregnant women and mothers, the authors claim, is still common despite anti-discrimination laws. They walk readers through the “murky depths” of the Family Leave Act of 1993, noting that many parents are excluded due to complex eligibility requirements for unpaid leave. On the bright side, the authors report that some states have passed supplemental maternity and paternity laws, and they include a useful state-by-state guide to help readers identify their rights. Practical information on such topics as how and when to inform an employer of a pregnancy, and how to write a letter requesting pregnancy accommodations at work, is also included. The authors urge that working parents need to do their “homework” on their legal rights; this book will, no doubt, prove to be a valuable resource.
