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.

April 4, 2020
As employment lawyers sensitive to the needs of employees, Tuckner Sipser is closely following the progress of the global COVID-19 outbreak. As we continue to take steps to protect the health of ourselves and our families, we are also continuing to provide the highest level of legal counseling and advocacy service to our clients. Although these rapidly evolving developments are forcing us all to conduct business differently, our commitment to you remains unchanged.
Our operations have not been interrupted, but to reduce the risk of coronavirus exposure, we are:
- Monitoring the latest developments and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the federal government, and state agencies in New York.
- Our attorneys and staff are all working remotely with full access to firm files and resources while still ensuring privacy and data security.
- Restricted communication with clients to email, telephone, and videoconferencing instead of in-person meetings unless an in-person attendance is truly required.
- Increased our use of technology to conduct internal and external meetings.
Despite this unprecedented pandemic crisis, clients can count on us to be as responsive as always, maintain confidentiality and digital security, and promptly handle their requests.
If you are already working with us, please continue to communicate with Jack, Deborah, Bill, Gat, Linda or Saswat as you have been doing. If you are not yet a client but need legal assistance, please call or email Deborah at [email protected]. She will respond promptly.
Please be well and stay safe and we will continue to update you on our website www.womensrightsny.com if circumstances change.
