Pregnancy Discrimination

As recent as February 2012, the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) stated that, despite laws to protect women from pregnancy discrimination, it remains a significant problem in the workplace. Women, an important part of the American workforce, have no choice but to resort to discrimination laws to defend their right to work before and after their pregnancies.  If you believe you have been terminated or harassed because you are pregnant, speak to an employment attorney as soon as possible to assess your rights under the law.  Many law offices, such as this one, will provide a short consultation free of charge.
