Pregnancy raises many questions as it relates to employment law, among both employers and employees. What obligations does a pregnant employee have to her employer?

California Fair Employment Act Protections
Under the California Fair Employment Act, it is unlawful for employers "to refuse to hire or employ the person or to refuse to select the person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or to discharge the person from employment or from a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment" based on sex. The law further defines "sex" to include "pregnancy, childbirth, or medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth."
Pregnancy discrimination is another form of sex discrimination in California. According to California statute, women have four months of pregnancy leave and are entitled to certain workplace accommodations for the pregnancy. However, depending upon certain circumstances unique to the employer such as the size of the business, these rights may vary.
Our lawyers are skilled in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation. If litigation becomes necessary, however, we will draw upon our extensive trial experience to aggressively advocate for your rights and interests in court.
If you feel that you have suffered discrimination or harassment in the workplace due to your pregnancy or your plans to become pregnant, whether through demotion, wrongful termination or refusal to hire, trust the experienced Los Angeles attorneys at the Bononi Law Group, LLP, to protect your rights and promote your interests. We will listen to your individual concerns and the unique circumstances surrounding your pregnancy discrimination case, then clearly explain the options available and offer recommendations as to how best to resolve the dispute.
