MN to pass bill that promotes women’s welfare in workplace

After passing through the Minnesota legislature, a bill that promotes women’s welfare in the workplace is expected to be signed by Governor Mark Dayton, the National Law Review stated on May 10.

Reports said the Women’s Economic Security Act (Act) will improve the working conditions of women. Under the new bill, created by combining nine different bills, there are also specific protections for pregnant or nursing women. When “Act” is signed and enacted, the gender pay gap between women and men is expected to decrease. Lawmakers hope this bill will be beneficial for business in the state.
