Have you been discriminated at work due to your pregnancy? Under The California

to harass, demote,
terminate or otherwise discriminate against an employee for becoming pregnant. Additionally,
under the California Pregnancy Disability Leave Law, California employers
should provide up to four months of leave for pregnant employees. If you
feel that you are being mistreated due to your pregnancy, do not hesitate
to contact Attorney Bill Marder at Marder Employment Law. He is an experienced
Silicon Valley employment discrimination lawyer who represents wrongfully
treated workers all across California.
Examples of Pregnancy Discrimination
An employer should make reasonable accommodations for a pregnant employee.
If she is working a job that causes bodily stress, she can request to
be moved to a different position. Pregnancy discrimination can be as simple
as the failure to accommodate a pregnancy.
The following can indicate pregnancy discrimination:
- You weren't hired because you are pregnant.
- You didn't get a promotion because you are pregnant.
- You were denied benefits because you are pregnant.
- You were fired because you are pregnant.
How to Prove Pregnancy Discrimination by Your Employer
In order to win a pregnancy discrimination case, you must prove that you
were treated differently than other employees similar situated, and that
your mistreatment was directly because of your pregnancy.
You can prove that pregnancy discrimination took place either through:
- Direct evidence of discrimination (a self-incriminating statement)
- Circumstantial evidence of discrimination (proof that your employer deviated
from his usual practices or policies)
What Kind of Damages Could I be Entitled to?
If you can prove that your employer unlawfully discriminated against you
for being pregnant, you could be entitled to damages for:
- Emotional distress
- Lawyer fees
- Lost wages
- Punitive damages
