At Shelton Law Practice, LLC, we represent women who have been subjected to discrimination on the basis of their status as a pregnant worker. As an example, pregnancy discrimination can occur when an employer fails to hire or terminates an employee because she is pregnant. Pregnancy discrimination can also occur when an employer otherwise treats a pregnant employee differently than non-pregnant workers as related to the terms and conditions of employment. Similarly, if you were denied an employment opportunity or fired because you are expecting, you may have been subjected to unlawful discrimination on the basis of your pregnancy.
Every case is different so whether your unique circumstances amount to an actionable pregnancy discrimination claim, depends on the facts of your specific case. Call us today to learn more about your legal rights and to determine if your employer’s conduct violates the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
