When you are pregnant, it is supposed to be one of the happiest times of your life. Unfortunately, many bosses make your job more difficult when they find out you are pregnant. It’s hard enough being a working mother, but when you suffer pregnancy discrimination or pregnancy harassment at work, it makes your job more stressful and your life more stressful, too.
If you have been discriminated against or harassed on the job because of your pregnancy, you can turn to the experienced employment law attorneys at the Navarette Law Firm.
Examples Of Pregnancy Discrimination In The Workplace
