Abstract

This article describes how companies are responding to the Supreme Court decision prohibiting employers from using sex-specific fetal protection policies as a hedge against the risk of tort liability for workplace exposure to toxins. The author recommends that companies create programs that first measures all the risks using a gender-neutral methodology, and then adopt policies tailored to best respond to the results generated by this research. In this way, the author concludes, employers are maximizing their return and the health of all employees and any children they may have in the future is better protected.
