Having a baby can be one of the most meaningful moments in a woman’s life. Don’t let an employer ruin the experience.
There are many state and federal laws in place to protect the rights of expectant mothers in the workplace. The California Pregnancy Discrimination Act provides important protections for employees and job applicants who are either pregnant or are new mothers, and the Family and Medical Leave Act grants women up to twelve weeks of unpaid maternity leave in which their employer must hold their job open for them and continue to provide certain benefits. If you feel as though you have been denied these rights due to your pregnancy, reach out to The Tran Firm. Our knowledge runs deep in this area and we will assert your rights under the law.
