Were You Discriminated Against At Work Because Of Your Gender Or Pregnancy Status?

Someone's gender should never be an issue when it comes to hiring, evaluating employees, implementation of workplace rules and termination. All employer/employee interactions should be as gender neutral as possible. This is, however, not always the case.

Too many women are subject to discrimination in the workplace based on their gender or their pregnancy status. That discrimination can take many forms, including:

  • Harassing language
  • Unwanted sexual touching
  • Sexually explicit jokes
  • Exclusions from certain employment
  • Denial of promotion or advancement
  • Refusal to hire
  • Denial of equal compensation or benefits

Did Your Pregnancy Create Issues At Work?

For many pregnant women, a time of joy can become a time of extreme stress if they are not being treated fairly by their employers. Legitimate health concerns may not be recognized and women might be asked to perform duties that are risky during pregnancy. Maternity leave available under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) might be denied. They may have been terminated for no other reason than they became pregnant.

We are here to help women who have been discriminated against in the workplace because of their gender or pregnancy status.
