Understanding Pregnancy Discrimination
Expectant mothers face enough challenges in the workplace without having to face the challenge of working for an employer who acts unfairly and even illegally. That is why we stand by women who have experienced discrimination because of pregnancy.
In our experience as employment lawyers, we have seen employers use excuses to wrongly fire pregnant women and new moms. We know that it can be difficult to tell when your employer is speaking the truth — or making excuses.
Often, pregnant women experience supervisors who are more critical of their work. They find that their job responsibilities are changed against their will. Often, they are cut back so that they miss out on key projects. If your job has changed, we can help you get to the bottom of things and protect your rights as an employee and a parent.
Gender Discrimination Comes In Many Forms
Gender discrimination is much more prevalent in the United States than people think. Often, employment practices that seem legitimate are actually biased toward men or women. Our experienced lawyers are dedicated to protecting your rights by holding employers accountable for many different kinds of gender discrimination, including:
- Unequal pay (called disparate pay)
- Unequal work assignments (called disparate treatment)
- Failure to promote
- Unequal commission
- Wrongful termination
