Standing Up For Your Rights As A Pregnant Employee
Pregnancy discrimination includes any type of unfavorable treatment directed toward a woman in the workplace because of her pregnant state, the birth of a child or medical conditions that relate to her pregnancy. Women who experience this type of discriminatory treatment from an employer may do so in the following ways:
- Denying an employee her right to leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act
- Requiring that female employees give notice of a pregnancy and using as a way to limit employment opportunities
- Preventing an employee from returning to work after learning of a pregnancy or giving birth if the employee wants to return and is physically capable of doing so
- Firing, demoting or passing over a woman for a deserved promotion because she is pregnant
After a thorough evaluation of your case, we can determine if you have grounds to move forward with a civil claim on the basis of pregnancy discrimination. We have extensive experience in litigation cases of all types, and we know what it takes to help you secure rightful damages for unfairly losing your job or other losses.
