Our attorneys and staff have decades of combined experience and a long track record of successfully protecting the rights of employees who were the subjects of discrimination.
You Cannot Be Punished for Choosing to Be a Mother
When you’re pregnant, there are several ways you can experience work-related discrimination, including:
- getting fired for becoming pregnant
- your employer’s refusal to make accommodations for a pregnancy-related disability
- harassment for missing work due to pregnancy
- refusing time off work as covered by the Family Medical Leave Act
- refusing to promote you due to the possibility of pregnancy and taking time off
If you have experienced any of the above issues, you may be entitled to compensation such as back pay and lost wages.
