Since 1999 we have been New York’s women’s rights in the workplace law firm. As pregnancy discrimination lawyers, we have helped thousands of women subjected to illegal and wrongful pregnancy discrimination at work, and those who have been illegally terminated.

You have rights. Pregnancy Discrimination in the Workplace is Illegal. If you’ve been subject to illegal pregnancy discrimination at work, you are entitled to compensation. And if you have been illegally terminated, you may be entitled to back pay, future compensation, attorneys’ fees, and even punitive damages. As pregnancy discrimination attorneys, we can help.

What Should You Do Right Now?

  1. Big Companies want you to feel powerless. They want to feel that they control the workplace, and that they can do what whatever they want to do. They are wrong. You have rights and the law is there to protect you.
  2. Employers must “reasonably accommodate” your pregnancy, unless it causes “undue hardship” (which usually will not be the case). For example, employers usually must allow time for doctor’s visits.
  3. The New York Women’s Equality Act of 2016 provides expanded protections for pregnant women. These laws apply to all employers with four or more employees. Most small employers are no longer exempt from these requirements.
  4. DON’T file a complaint or charge with a governmental agency, such as the EEOC, BEFORE speaking with a qualified employment lawyer. Filing a complaint or charge can directly impact the course of action available and your future options. Speak to a qualified employment attorney first. Then, if you want, you can file a complaint on your own.
  5. Learn whether you have a valid claim – get experienced legal advice. Our firm focuses on pregnancy discrimination, wrongful termination and other workplace claims – we can evaluate your case, and there is no fee or obligation. We often accept wrongful termination and illegal workplace claims on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will not owe us a fee unless we recover for you.
  6. Realize that every matter has a filing deadline. The deadlines vary depending upon different factors, such as whether the case will be in federal court or state court, for example.
