Austin Pregnancy Discrimination Lawyer

Whether you are pregnant or have recently given birth, adding a new member to your family should be one of the happiest times of your life. Unfortunately, many employers do not share this enthusiasm, and they instead view pregnancy as an obstacle or burden to their ability to conduct business. In the worst cases, employers may discriminate against or harass new or expectant mothers, or even take action against these individuals when they request or take maternity leave as permitted by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

If you are a victim of harassment or discrimination as a result of your pregnancy, it is important to know that you have options. State and federal law prohibits this type of conduct and protects those who have done nothing wrong and are just seeking to bring new life into the world.
