Discriminated Against Because You Were Pregnant?

Experienced & Aggressive Employment Lawyers in Los Angeles

About Being Discriminated Over Pregnancy

Women disabled by pregnancy or conditions related to pregnancy are entitled to disability leave.

Unfortunately, pregnancy discrimination is prevalent in the workplace.  During the joyous and stressful time of being pregnant, women are often refused pregnancy and disability leave they are entitled to, retaliated against, and even terminated because their employers do not want to be inconvenienced.  Both Federal and California law prevent such actions.

If you or someone you know has been fired or mistreated because of their disability or fired while on disability or pregnancy leave, please contact us for a free confidential consultation.

Cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only get paid after you do. Consultations/communications can be virtual if preferred.

“Emanuel is one of the best lawyers that I have ever met. Emanuel and his team worked so hard and had a rebuttal for everything that the defense attorney had. Emanuel and his team did such a wonderful job that the defendant fired their attorney and went straight to settlement and made me whole again”

Case Focus: Sarah

Disability Law - Pregnancy Disability Leave - Sarah

Sarah informed her employer she had become pregnant and was visibly showing. As a result, she would need reasonable accommodations (including time off) for her pregnancy, medical condition, and child bonding.

Sarah had to go to the hospital for a pregnancy issue. After she informed her employer of the hospital visit for her pregnancy she was immediately terminated.

Sarah’s employer unlawfully used her pregnancy and medical condition against her, and terminated her employment to avoid dealing with her medical and parental needs.
