You’re bringing a new life into the world. Did your employer engage in pregnancy discrimination?
Pregnancy is supposed to be a joyful experience – a new life is entering the world. But your employer may discriminate against you by terminating you, disciplining you, or changing the terms and conditions of your employment, because you are pregnant. This is pregnancy discrimination, and it is illegal.
The New York State Human Rights Law also requires employers to accommodate a “pregnancy related condition,” which includes any medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth.
