Pregnancy Discrimination

West Palm Beach - Fort Lauderdale - Pregnancy Claims

Discrimination in the workplace isn't always a question of age, race, or sex. Sometimes employers treat workers unfairly because a medical condition or family situation will be inconvenient for management or cause health insurance expenses to rise. For pregnant women, both medical and family situations can tempt an employer to find someone else for the position. If you need an attorney's advice because you were fired, laid off, reassigned, or demoted during pregnancy or maternity leave, contact employment discrimination lawyer William Julien in Boca Raton.

The right to a period of unpaid leave during pregnancy or after childbirth is protected under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act as well as Florida's anti-discrimination law. Many women find, however, that they are not welcomed back after they return from maternity leave.

A successful pregnancy discrimination case under either state or federal law can result in liability against the employer in the amount of lost income, benefits, damage to career prospects, and serious emotional distress related to the violation of the employee's rights. As an experienced workplace discrimination attorney, William Julien knows how to investigate and present claims of unfair treatment based on unlawful termination, demotion, or denial of protected rights. Sometimes women don't even know that they were the victims of pregnancy discrimination until they call us about denial of their unemployment benefits claims.
