Under federal law (if you work for an employer with at least 15 employees), you are covered by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Civil Rights Act, which protects you from discrimination based on your sex, which all of course pregnancy-related issues are inseparable from your gender and who you are as a woman.

Age Discrimination is Wrong and Illegal – We Help Victims Seek Compensation for Their Discrimination
Employees in the United States are protected from age discrimination under federal and state law. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees who are at least 40 years old and work for an employer with at least 20 employees. The ADEA makes it illegal for an employer to make job-related decisions based solely upon age.
Many state laws go further, such as New York law, which applies to employers of at least 4 employees and protects both older and younger workers from age-related employment discrimination. If you were laid off, but younger employees with less experience were not, you may be suffering from the challenge of age discrimination.
When discrimination occurs, we will seek to hold companies liable to the fullest extent of the law on behalf of our clients.
