Pregnancy Discrimination

Women find themselves being treated unfairly at work because they are pregnant. Thousands of women who are pregnant or who have become new mothers file claims every year relating to unlawful treatment during pregnancy and after child birth.

Federal and State laws make sure that Americans are able to have children without losing their jobs.

We are dedicated to aggressively litigating claims of pregnancy discrimination. If you suspect that you were fired or laid off because you are pregnant; turned down for a promotion because you are pregnant; not given benefits for pregnancy because you are not married, our lawyers are dedicated to help you enjoy the rights that you deserve.

If you are pregnant you must be allowed to keep working as long as you are able to do your job. For example, female employees often are not promoted because employers fear they will get pregnant and leave.  Female employees also are terminated when an employer learns that they are pregnant and will be taking their legally authorized maternity leave.

Pregnancy discrimination is particularly devastating to single-mothers and families who rely on their employers for health insurance.  Often, female employees are left without proper medical care during their pregnancy because they were terminated solely because of their maternity.

If you believe your employer has discriminated against you because of your pregnancy, call J. Graves Associates and we will aggressively litigate your claims in court.
