Pregnancy And Gender Discrimination In The Workplace
You were discharged abruptly when you told your employer that you were pregnant. Or perhaps you took advantage of your rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act to care for and bond with your baby after its birth. On your return to work, you find yourself sidelined into a lesser position than before or are discriminated against in matters involving compensation, equal pay, promotion and career advancement.
Gender and pregnancy discrimination are against the law. Women who have experienced this type of treatment may be eligible for compensation for their wage losses, lost benefits, emotional suffering and other losses. Nonpregnant women who have suffered employment discrimination on account of their gender may also be eligible for compensation.

Some discrimination cases are not simple or straightforward. Not every employer in Texas is subject to the Family and Medical Leave Act and thus required to provide maternity leave. Discrimination against women based on their gender can express itself in subtle ways. That means that every case of discrimination is not necessarily actionable.
At our law firm, we are highly cognizant of the nuances of the law regarding pregnancy and gender discrimination. If your claim has merit, we will vigorously advocate for you in an appropriate forum, including settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration or litigation.
