What Is Pregnancy Discrimination in the Workplace?
Pregnancy discrimination can take many forms. An employer might terminate your employment, deny you a promotion, remove responsibilities and take other discriminatory actions against you if you are expecting a child or need to take maternity leave.
Under the state and federal laws governing pregnancy discrimination, employers are obligated to:
- Provide adequate time off for pregnancy, childbirth and related medical needs
- Provide accommodations for pregnant workers
- Transfer a pregnant employee to a less strenuous position if one exists
If you are the victim of pregnancy discrimination, it is important to have an experienced employment law attorney on your side. We will work closely with you in order to understand your rights in regard to pregnancy in the workplace. We will work to secure compensation for the losses you have suffered and to ensure that your employment status is not compromised.
