As trial lawyers, one of the challenges we regularly face is the preconceived notions that juries have about pregnant women and new mothers. Many believe that a woman should stay home with the baby, rather than go back to work right away. While it is true that many women take pride in being stay-at-home mothers, others would prefer to return to the careers they have built for themselves. This is a choice each person has the right to make. This is not the employer’s choice. We know how to educate juries about this.
Compensation and Justice for Wronged Employees
Pregnancy discrimination is a form of gender discrimination. Whether this discrimination comes in the form of FMLA leave violations, harassment or the creation of a hostile workplace, we can help you get compensation. This can include compensation for lost wages and benefits, emotional distress, attorney fees and, in some cases, punitive damages.
Justice is also a critical reason for pursuing a claim. By taking action, you will not only get justice for yourself, but you may help prevent the company from wronging your coworkers in the future.
