Pregnancy Discrimination

Call 215-322-6990 to speak with a PA Pregnancy Discrimination Lawyer today!

Pregnancy brings promise and joy, along with new responsibilities.  When you are pregnant, the last thing you need is to have your job threatened or your ability to care for your new child diminished by being fired or otherwise subjected to unlawful pregnancy discrimination by your employer.  If your employer is taking action against you because you are pregnant, contact a PA pregnancy discrimination lawyer to discuss your situation.

Fortunately, the days when employers could fire women because of pregnancy are over.  Now, state and federal employment laws protect parents’ rights to:

  • Take time off for child birth, maternity leave and adoption
  • Take time off during pregnancy when medical needs warrant it

Were you demoted, denied a raise, discharged or subjected to a different adverse employment action after telling your employer you are pregnant?  Were you denied a pregnancy accommodation granted to non-pregnant co-workers?  Were you demoted or not allowed to return to your job after giving birth?  Were you subjected to retaliation after requesting an accommodation or complaining about pregnancy discrimination?  If so, contact a PA pregnancy discrimination lawyer to discuss your claim.  Possible results of pregnancy discrimination claim includes:

  • Reinstatement
  • Monetary damages and back pay
  • A promotion if you were denied a promotion due to your pregnancy
  • Additional work responsibilities if they were denied or removed due to your pregnancy
  • A job if you were hot hired due to pregnancy

Your employer has no right to fire you simply because you are pregnant.

Were you were fired, demoted, or denied a job or promotion because you decided to have a baby? 

If so, call Pennsylvania employment lawyer Bruce Preissman today!  Attorney Preissman can answer your questions and provide straightforward counsel and advice regarding your options.  He may recommend filing a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) or he may recommend filing a lawsuit.  Either way, he can provide comprehensive legal representation to you for your pregnancy discrimination claim.
