State Labor Laws in Transition: From Protection to Equal Status for Women. Pamphlet 15.
This booklet summarizes state labor laws of special interest to women and highlights trends evidenced in the past dozen years. Although focus is on state laws, information is provided on their federal counterparts to the extent needed to clarify the effect of the state enactments. The content covers minimum wage, premium pay for overtime, equal pay, fair employment practices, Title VII (the equal employment opportunity section of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964), maximum hours, nightwork limitations, occupational limitations, weightlifting limitations, limitations on employment before and after childbirth, meal periods, rest periods, seating, occupational safety and health, and decisions ahead. The appendix includes the basic provisions of Title VII, guidelines on sex discrimination issued under that law, and a chart showing the current status of labor laws affecting women in each state.
