Are You A Victim Of Pregnancy Discrimination?
Pregnancy can be a wonderful time, as you undergo changes and count down the days until you meet your child. It can also be a challenging time, both physically and mentally. But your employer should not be adding to the challenges by cutting your pay, creating a hostile work environment or threatening your job.
It is illegal for employers to discriminate against women on the basis of pregnancy, just as it is illegal to discriminate against women due to gender. At the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Beverly Hills, we are committed to helping victims of pregnancy discrimination get the justice they deserve. We serve clients nationwide.
Pregnancy discrimination can take many forms, some subtle and some overt. You do not even have to be pregnant to suffer from pregnancy discrimination. Examples of discrimination include:
- An employer asking you if you are or intend to become pregnant
- An employer failing to make reasonable accommodations to accommodate pregnancy
- An employer terminating an employee for becoming pregnant
- An employer failing to grant medical maternity leave under the California Family Rights Act or the California Pregnancy Disability Leave Law
- An employer harassing an employee due to her pregnancy
If you think you may have suffered as a result of pregnancy discrimination, it is important to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible about your options for pursuing legal action. Harm to your career that goes unchecked could lead to future complications. Taking action now can help ensure that you have the resources you need to provide for your family.
