An Atlanta Pregnancy Discrimination Lawyer Can Help
If you have suffered discrimination because you are pregnant or have recently given birth, it is very important to understand your rights.
The federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act prohibits pregnancy discrimination. It states, "Discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions constitutes unlawful sex discrimination. Women affected by pregnancy or related conditions must be treated in the same manner as other employees with similar abilities or limitations."
This means if you are pregnant, you are protected in any aspect of your employment, including:
- Hiring and firing
- Pay and job assignments
- Benefits and all other terms and conditions of employment
To win your pregnancy discrimination case you will need to prove that you were mistreated because of your pregnancy or status as a mother.
While the impact of discrimination may be clear to you, proving pregnancy discrimination in a court of law can be difficult. That's why you should always act quickly when you suspect pregnancy discrimination.
Our Atlanta pregnancy discrimination lawyers have the experience and skill to help you successfully protect your rights and build a winning case.
