Trusted Employment Lawyer in California
We represent women who were discriminated against or harassed by their employer because of their pregnancy or pregnancy-related disability.
It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against a female employee because she has become pregnant and/or needs reasonable accommodations due to her pregnancy. If your pregnancy causes you to need work limitations, your employer has a duty to engage in a good faith, interactive process with you to determine what reasonable accommodations the employer can provide in order for you to maintain your employment without risking your or your unborn baby’s health. Your employer also has a duty to provide reasonable post-pregnancy accommodations, such as a safe place to breast pump.
If your employer has retaliated against you or terminated you because of your pregnancy or related accommodation request, or if your employer has refused to engage in an interactive process with you and has refused to provide you with reasonable accommodations, you may have pregnancy discrimination claims against your employer.
