Pregnancy & Caregiver Discrimination

Enforcing your rights in the workplace can be especially tricky. It takes delicacy to avoid antagonizing your boss or creating strife with your coworkers, let alone jeopardizing your position. Pregnant and nursing women, and all moms and dads, are entitled to fair treatment. You have enough stress already; you shouldn’t have to worry whether you’ll be penalized in the workplace for asserting your rights. We can help to ensure you are adequately compensated and fairly treated for the hard work you do, and that you’re not unfairly punished for the equally important work that you do at home – being a parent. If you’ve already suffered discrimination or other mistreatment, we can help you recover damages against your employer. Such repercussions will also help to ensure that other employees fare better in the future.

WHY REACH OUT TO US?

We will always know we made the right call picking you to represent us. We are so grateful for everything you have done… This is an amazing ending to the year.

FIRM SUCCESSES

Hostile Work Environment

We secured substantial monetary compensation for our client who had been subject to a hostile work environment, including gender-based slurs and lewd activity.

Medical Complications Threatened Job Security

Our client was told that, because she needed a few additional months to recover from post-childbirth medical complications, her job was no longer guaranteed for the following term.  We intervened and quickly secured the reassurance they should have given her from the beginning – that she would not be illegally penalized for the woeful task of propagating the human species.

Pattern of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Our client came to us after her boss sexually assaulted her.  Quietly and discretely, we were able to support our client in identifying other women who he had harassed, uncovering a serious pattern of abuse targeting a vulnerable population.  Through litigation, we secured a substantial six-figure recovery for our clients, one of whom said she could finally sleep soundly for the first time in years.  Even better, inside sources say that the behavior has stopped.

Fired While Pregnant

Our client was fired, for totally pretextual reasons and without warning, shortly after announcing her pregnancy.  First, we made sure she had the health insurance arrangements she needed to ensure a safe and healthy delivery.  Then we put the fear of god in her employer and negotiated a substantial settlement payment, enabling her to enjoy a safe and peaceful labor and delivery, and a peaceful bonding time with her (now healthy and happy!) baby.

Threatened in the Workplace

Our client had secured a new job after being forced out by homophobic threats and slurs.  However, the harassment continued when his employer tried to enforce a questionable “non-compete” clause, jeopardizing his new position.  We shut that baloney down swiftly and our client was able to move on in peace.
