There are legal requirements that must be followed by employers under the Minnesota’s Women’s Economic Security Act (WESA) for pregnant employees. Your company must provide accommodations for the following:
- More frequent restroom, food, and water breaks
- Limits on lifting over 20 pounds
This policy only applies to companies with 21 or more employees in Minnesota, however, is recommended no matter the number of employees. For more information regarding WESA requirements, we at Vinna Human Resources are here to help guide your company through these processes and procedures.
