Pregnancy Discrimination

New York and Connecticut Employment Lawyers

BLG’s employment lawyers represent victims of pregnancy discrimination in the workplace. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against women based on pregnancy. State and federal laws protect women against this form of discrimination in all aspects of employment including interviewing, hiring, firing and promoting.

Pregnancy discrimination can be based on actual pregnancy, childbirth or medical conditions related to the pregnancy. Examples of pregnancy discrimination include employers taking the following actions against a pregnant employee:

  • Firing
  • Refusing to Hire
  • Job Demotion
  • Asking When an Employee or Job Applicant Plans to Become Pregnant
  • Refusing to Promote

If you have experienced pregnancy discrimination in your workplace please contact us for a free case evaluation. You can reach one of our experienced attorneys at (800) 617-4254 or by filling out our form on the Contact Us page.

Client Reviews
Patrick Boyd was my lawyer for an employment case that was based around my maternity leave. He was extremely supportive, very communicative and professional throughout my entire case. I got the outcome I desired and would highly recommend him for any employment and labor issues. 5 stars all around. From A Fashion Executive With A Maternity Leave Case
It’s not everyday that you find yourself in the awkward situation where you have to sue your employer. The Boyd Law Group, PLLC was recommended to me by a friend who had a similar situation in the past. In terms of results The Boyd Law Group, PLLC was able to resolve my situation in a favorable manner and it only took 3 months to get a complete resolution. The firm and its associates were always professional and respectful. They gave me regular updates on my case and were very thorough with reviewing and obtaining relevant information. What I like the most was how straight forward Patrick was from the moment I first presented my case and how well he went about respecting my need for privacy and efficiency as a client, as well as my risk tolerance for the whole process. Patrick was a smooth negotiator and knew exactly what moves to make and play to push for an expedited resolution. I hope I never find myself in this type of predicament again but would not hesitate to use or recommend The Boyd Law Group, PLLC. to anyone dealing with an employment legal issue.
