Forms of Pregnancy Discrimination
Because workers who become pregnant suddenly have medical and family planning responsibilities to tend to (including maternity leave), many employers will look for excuses to marginalize or even terminate them. Pregnant employees have been exposed to numerous actions from employers that qualify as discrimination because of this.
Common forms of discrimination against pregnant workers include:
- Termination (before or after birth)
- Denied maternity leave
- Denied promotions
- Denial of training
- Refusal to hire
- Denial of time off to tend to medical needs
- Failure to preserve position following maternity leave
If you believe you have been subject to one of these actions due to your pregnancy, you may have viable legal options to seek relief from your employer. Our firm knows what it takes to substantiate these claims against California employers and what can be done to ensure that these workers' voices are heard before our legal system
