Pregnancy Discrimination

Were you fired, or refused a job because you were pregnant? You may be able to recover damages for pregnancy discrimination. Call an experienced California discrimination lawyer.

What happens if all of a sudden, you are being treated differently because you’re pregnant? You may feel you’re being discriminated against because you’re pregnant, or the boss is all of a sudden putting more demands on you, or somehow treating you differently than before because you are now pregnant. First of all, you have to realize that it is against the law for an employer to discriminate against you because of your pregnancy. You should document what has transpired, how you are being treated differently now than you were treated before you were pregnant. Whether it’s taking notes, or documents, or emails, or whatever it is, keep a file for that. Then, what you need to do is seek appropriate legal representation. There will be instances where the attorney can give you specific directions on what you should or shouldn’t do, how it should be documented to make sure that your legal rights are protected. However, you need to keep this in mind. You should not be discriminated against because you are pregnant. That is prohibited by law and you have options. You need to talk to an attorney that handles these matters so that your actions are appropriate and that your rights are protected.
