Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney

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 the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., in Boynton Beach. Our attorneys have decades of legal experience, and we represent workers in employment law disputes throughout Florida.

When Your “Welcome Back” Is Less Than Warm

The right to a period of unpaid leave during pregnancy or after childbirth is protected under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) 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 for damages, including:

  • Lost income
  • Benefits
  • Damage to career prospects
  • Serious emotional distress related to the violation of the employee’s rights

As an experienced workplace discrimination attorney, firm founder William M. 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 are the victims of pregnancy discrimination until they call us about the denial of their unemployment benefits claims. Mr. Julien and our other talented lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to help you maximize your legal options and potential for economic recovery.
