Morning sickness is a natural occurrence common in most pregnancies. Pregnant women may feel nauseous particularly during the early hours of the day. For women who are at work during the course of their pregnancy, morning sickness usually hits them during the workday.
As an employer or a manager, it is important for you to know how you might best maintain a safe, conducive work environment for your pregnant employees. You may want to consider arranging a flexible work schedule to help her deal with morning sickness more easily. Job reassignments should also be considered if her current position may greatly compromise her safety and/or may significantly affect productivity.
