Is Your Employer Failing to Accommodate Your Pregnancy?

If you are pregnant or are planning on becoming pregnant, you are likely considering what you may need to do to manage your pregnancy and ensure your child is safely born.

Call an Attorney if Your Employer Denies Your Pregnancy Rights

Although sharing something like your pregnancy with a supervisor may feel concerning, making him or her aware of your condition and expected or immediate need for reasonable accommodation is important. It’s best to do this in person so an attorney can gather it as evidence if a lawsuit against your employer becomes necessary in the future.

If your employer refuses to make reasonable adjustments at work – or goes as far as to retaliate against you or deny your other rights as a pregnant person in the workplace – reach out to a pregnancy attorney in San Diego immediately. At Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, our dedicated attorneys will fight for your rights. If other employees at your company faced similar mistreatment, a class action lawsuit can rectify unlawful employment practices and help aggrieved parties seek compensation.
