Pregnancy discrimination is when your employer treats you differently because he or she finds out you are pregnant or perceives that you could become pregnant. This is against the law. You are entitled to be pregnant, keep your job, and to take a maternity leave, if necessary, to have your baby and take care of some things you need to do after your pregnancy. You are not allowed to be terminated because you’re pregnant. You are not allowed to be treated unfairly because you are pregnant. You have to be treated the same as a non-pregnant employee. If you feel that you are the victim of pregnancy discrimination, you should definitely speak with an experienced employment attorney who can help you obtain justice.
