Governor Quinn Statement on the Passage of Job Protection for Pregnant Women

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement about the Illinois House passage of House Bill 8, which provides job protection for working pregnant women:

“No woman should have to decide between keeping her job or keeping her baby. I commend Representative Mary Flowers for championing this bill and securing its passage in the House.

“The legislation requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for all working pregnant women, including part-time and full-time employees. These protections will ensure healthier women and babies, and a stronger workforce across our state.

“I urge the Senate to quickly pass this important bill.”
