Representing Victims Of Pregnancy Discrimination
Employers are prohibited by law from discriminating against a woman because of her pregnancy status. But the law cannot always prevent employers from engaging in discriminatory practices; some employers go around the law or blatantly disregard the law. At the Law Office of Sandra D. Parker, our attorney relentlessly represents clients who have been wrongfully discriminated against based on race, age, gender or pregnancy status.
FMLA And Maternity Leave
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) offers many protections, including the right of pregnant employees to take time off from work to give birth and subsequently care for their newborns. In some cases, employers may not comply with the provisions of the FMLA.
If your employer did any of the following, you may be able to bring a pregnancy discrimination claim under the FMLA:
- Failed to advise you of your rights
- Discouraged you from taking time off
- Denied your request for maternity leave
- Failed to hold your position while you were on leave
- Retaliated against you for taking FMLA time
Similarly, you may also have a pregnancy discrimination claim if you have been denied a job because you were pregnant during the interview. Your employer also cannot discriminate against you for being pregnant with regard to job assignments, promotions, training or termination.
Attorney Sandra D. Parker has extensive experience handling employment law claims, including cases involving pregnancy discrimination. She will leave no stone unturned in providing you with aggressive representation if you have been treated unfairly.
