Colorado YEO Secures Benefits for Pregnant Workers
June 29, 2016

Faith Winter’s House Bill 1438, which enjoyed bipartisan support, limits what heavy materials pregnant workers can lift, mandates breaks for water and the bathroom, provides for alternate seating arrangements, and more. “I think this is going to have a big impact,” Winter said.
