Understand your legal options

Pregnant women are protected by a number of state and federal laws, making it unlawful for an employer to take any of these actions:

  • During a job interview, bring up the subject of your pregnancy or desire to become pregnant.
  • Due to your pregnancy, discriminate against you in hiring, firing, promotions, training, scheduling, and other areas
  • As a result of your pregnancy, forcing you to accept fewer hours or responsibilities
  • Refuse to make reasonable adjustments such as extended relaxation periods or a temporary change in job responsibilities
  • Deny you any maternity or pregnancy disability leave to which you may be entitled
  • Retaliate against you because you asked for or took time off

Come to PLBSH if you have questions concerning any of these scenarios. Our pregnancy discrimination lawyers are well-versed in all elements of pregnancy-related employment legislation and can help you understand your options.

With a pregnancy discrimination complaint, what can you achieve?

A pregnancy discrimination lawsuit should be pursued for three reasons:

  1. You wish to reclaim your position, hours, or promotion. A formal complaint can help you get back on your feet if you’ve been fired, had your hours reduced, or missed out on a well-deserved promotion because of pregnancy discrimination. Employers frequently agree to reverse discriminatory actions through mediation or arbitration, but a court order can also be obtained.
  2. You’re looking for a financial reward. Discrimination creates harm, and you are entitled to be compensated for it. Compensation may be provided to replace lost earnings, mental distress, and legal costs.
  3. You expect more from your employer. Employers will continue to conduct discrimination if no one speaks up against it. You are taking a position that will benefit all women and families by filing a complaint and/or filing a pregnancy discrimination case.

These are three of the most common reasons but you might have your own personal reasons.
