Pregnancy discrimination occurs when your employer discriminates against you in the workplace. This can be experienced when you are the butt of jokes, you are ridiculed, verbally or visibly harassed by an employer or colleagues due to your pregnancy. Discrimination can also be evident in situations where you are passed over for a promotion or a raise or your employer simply fails to offer you fair or equal compensation as your co-workers all because you have chosen to become pregnant.
Should you believe you are the victim of such discrimination, you have the right to protect yourself and seek any damages that might be owed to you in the form of unpaid wages and benefits as well as any other financial damages or personal losses suffered due to the actions of your employer. But don’t expect your employer or the company where you work to just willingly offer you that compensation all because you object to the treatment you are receiving.
What you can expect instead is a team of defense attorneys and experts for hire to stand in your way of receiving even one thin dime from your employer. They are all tasked with making sure your employer has no liability in this matter and, if that happens, you have very little recourse left.
Mounting a pregnancy discrimination claim is a complex road and traveling down that road all by yourself can bring about devastating results where remuneration is concerned. You could end up with far less than you deserve or, worse yet, receive nothing at all. That is why you should always have an expert legal team by your side, one with the experience, know-how, and support team necessary to fight for the compensation you deserve. That legal team is the Sassooness Law Group. We have decades of experience in litigating and, more importantly winning pregnancy discrimination cases for our clients.
