Our Law Firm Fights For Victims of Pregnancy Discrimination
Attorneys who are proud to protect the rights of mothers and families
The birth of a child should be a happy time in your life. Unfortunately, some employers focus only on the inconvenience the pregnancy and birth will cause in the workplace. These employers miss the blessing of such a miraculous event because they are too focused on their bottom line, leading to workplace discrimination on the basis of pregnancy.
That's illegal - and at Nilges Draher LLC, we can help.
What is pregnancy discrimination?
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act) prevents discrimination against pregnant women in the workplace. Pregnant women may also have additional rights under state law, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and depending on the circumstances of the pregnancy, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Pregnancy discrimination laws not only cover women who are pregnant, but also women who could become pregnant or are actively trying to become pregnant.
You may have a strong discrimination case if you experienced any of the following situations in the workplace:
- A company refused to hire you because you're pregnant.
- A company rescinded its job offer once they found out you're pregnant.
- You were fired after your supervisor or boss found out you're pregnant.
- You were denied a promotion due to your pregnancy.
- You did not receive a raise due to your pregnancy.
- A co-worker with less experience was promoted over you due to your pregnancy.
- Your supervisor encouraged you not to get pregnant.
These are just some examples. There are many others. If you believe you are a target of pregnancy discrimination, contact us. We can help.
