Temecula Pregnancy Discrimination Attorneys
Aggressive Advocacy for Working Mothers
In California, pregnant mothers are protected under more than just the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The FMLA grants 12 weeks of maternity leave before, during, and after childbirth, but the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) gives eligible employees an additional 12 weeks of paid or unpaid Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL).
Pregnancy should be a joyful occasion, but for many working mothers, it can lead to discrimination in the workplace. Pregnancy is a protected class in California, meaning that if you are discriminated against or terminated due to the fact that you are pregnant, then you have every right to file a discrimination claim against your employer.
What Is Pregnancy Discrimination?
Under the CFRA, employers in California with 5 or more employees are required by law to provide Pregnancy Discrimination Leave (PDL) to expectant mothers, no matter how long they have been employed.
Pregnancy discrimination can take the following forms:
- Reduction of pay because you are pregnant
- Unfair withholding of hours or overtime because you are pregnant
- Unfair exclusion from projects because you are pregnant
- Being overlooked for a deserved promotion because you are pregnant
- Being fired or “let go” because you are pregnant
- Being denied maternity leave under the FMLA and/or CFRA
Discrimination cases are very sensitive legal matters. To find out if you have a case for a pregnancy discrimination claim, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.
