On October 1, 2013, the Reasonable Accommodations for Pregnant Workers Act (“RAPWA”) became effective and applies to Maryland employers who have fifteen (15) or more employees.  Taking the lead from laws like that Americans with Disabilities Act, the new RAPWA will require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with a disability caused by, or contributed to, by a pregnancy.
