Pregnant women are protected from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and also have rights under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Women who are pregnant may face problems at work when they announce their pregnancy and/or when they seek leave during their pregnancy or after the birth of their child, or when they return to work or attempt to return. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of pregnancy and regulate pregnancy related leave.
Determining whether to pursue a legal claim is an important decision. You should be aware of your rights and prepared to take action if your rights are violated. Bell & Bell LLP offers free initial consultations, and we will take the time necessary to understand your situation and concerns.
If you believe that you have experienced pregnancy discrimination or have questions about your entitlement to leave in connection with your pregnancy, you should seek immediate legal assistance.
