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:
- Refusing to Hire
- Job Demotion
- Asking When an Employee or Job Applicant Plans to Become Pregnant
- Refusing to Promote
