Announcing the Pregnancy + My Job Roadmap & Guide
New Know-Your-Rights Materials for Pregnant and New Parents!August 15, 2019
Welcoming a new child into your home is already stressful enough; figuring out your rights to take time off work and get paid during that time shouldn’t be. These easy-to-navigate materials describe what your workplace rights are in California during and after pregnancy. They also teach you when and how to use those rights. They are specially designed to be usable by everyone.
We encourage health care professionals, social service providers, employers, and employees to share these tools to educate their patients, clients, employees, co-workers, family, and friends.

The Roadmap and accompanying Guide are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. The Guides are offered as both an interactive online “flip book” and as a downloadable pdf.
