Rights for Soon to be and New Moms

Are you pregnant or a new parent?

In Minnesota, you have legal protections to help keep you safe and healthy in the workplace. State laws to support working parents and employers cover three categories:

Pregnancy at work

Pregnancy or parental leave from work

Expressing milk at work

Know your rights. Speak up. Most employers are willing to comply with laws that support their pregnant and nursing employees. If they are unwilling, the MN Department of Labor can help. Learn more about your rights at: http://www.dli.mn.gov/newparents
