Pregnancy Discrimination

You may very well have a pregnancy discrimination case. I recommend you speak with a board certified employment law attorney or visit the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission at your earliest opportunity.

These issues are very fact-specific and a lawyer will need to interview you in detail to give you a definite answer.

For more information on pregnancy discrimination in general, you can visit this web page:
