What is Pregnancy Discrimination?

When you became pregnant, did you ever imagine that you would be subject to pregnancy discrimination in your workplace? Did you ever expect that your boss would terminate you as soon as he or she found out about your pregnancy? Pregnancy discrimination is a type of discrimination that is based on sex. Pregnancy discrimination occurs when employers discriminate against pregnant employees or make employment decisions based on their pregnancy. Unfortunately, many pregnant women encounter pregnancy discrimination after their employers learn about their pregnancies. Were you discriminated based on your pregnancy? Did your boss terminate you because you were pregnant? If you were wrongfully terminated because of your pregnancy, you likely have grounds to file a claim against your employer; it is essential that you seek legal assistance and begin your claim as soon as possible.

What Laws Protect Employees from Pregnancy Discrimination?

Are pregnant employees protected by law? Is it against the law to discriminate against pregnant employees and terminate employees based on their pregnancy? Without a doubt, there are many employment laws that protect employees against discrimination in the workplace. Many of these laws make it illegal for employers to discriminate their employees based on pregnancy. If you were terminated after your boss learned of your pregnancy, you should be familiar with the following laws on both the federal and state levels:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (federal): protects employees from discrimination on the basis of sex, among other personal characteristics.
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (federal): amendment to the Civil Rights Act. Protected employees from sex discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, including childbirth and other medical conditions related to pregnancy.
  • Fair Employment and Housing Act (state/California): protects employees from discrimination based on sex and pregnancy, among other personal characteristics.

Did your employer violate any of the laws above when he or she discriminated against you and terminated you on the basis of your pregnancy? If so, it is essential that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

What Can I do if I was terminated due to My Pregnancy?

I was fired after my boss found out I was pregnant, do I have a case? The answer is simple; you do have a case. You were fired after your boss found out that you were pregnant, now what? What can you do? What are your options? If you suffer any type of mistreatment in the workplace, you must seek the assistance of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The EEOC and DFEH are the federal and state employment agencies that oversee (and enforce) the laws that protect all employees from mistreatment in the workplace. All employment claims must go through the appropriate employment agency. When victimized employees file charges with the EEOC or DFEH, the agency will investigate the claim and take action against the employer if deemed necessary. Is filing your claim with the EEOC or DFEH your only option after being terminated based on your pregnancy? The short answer is no; you can also pursue action separate from the EEOC and DFEH.

Can I File a Lawsuit?

As described above, you have the right to file a charge with the EEOC or DFEH if you suffered any sort of discrimination in the workplace – especially if you were terminated based on your pregnancy. As briefly mentioned above, you have the right to pursue action separate from the employment agencies. Specifically, you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer. Could you simply initiate your lawsuit? Although you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit, you must receive the right-to-sue from the EEOC or the DFEH before you can take action. After receiving a right-to-sue notice from the appropriate employment agency, you can proceed with your lawsuit by contacting an employment attorney. It is essential that you act as soon as possible – especially considering that employment claims are subject to strict timelines after going through the EEOC or DFEH. If you are in need of an employment attorney after you were terminated due to your pregnancy, it is essential that you contact the employment experts at California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group as soon as possible.

Can I Receive Compensation?

If I file a pregnancy discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit, could I receive compensation? Without a doubt, you are likely eligible to recover compensation if you pursue a claim against your employer. What type of compensation could you receive? How much compensation could you receive? Depending on the details of your lawsuit, you might be eligible to receive compensation for all or some of the following:

  • Lost wages: compensation for the income that you lost directly due to your termination. This compensation often includes both back pay and front pay.
  • Lost benefits: compensation for the benefits that you lost directly because of your termination, examples of lost benefits could include lost health insurance, retirement benefits, stock options, and life insurance, for example.
  • Pain and suffering: compensation for the mental and emotional affliction directly resulting from your termination.
  • Punitive damages: compensation awarded as punishment for the defendant with the intention of preventing similar incidents from reoccurring.
