Protect Your Pregnancy Rights
Pregnant California employees are protected by the most powerful anti-discrimination and retaliation protections in the United States. Pregnant California employees have the right to pregnancy leave as well as reasonable accommodations before and after childbirth. California employers may not discriminate or retaliate against pregnant employees for requesting pregnancy leave or accommodations. California employers are also not allowed to terminate pregnant employees who request leave or accommodations. In fact, California employers must reinstate pregnant employees in the same or a comparable position at the end of their pregnancy leave.
Unfortunately, employers in California often refuse to provide pregnancy leave or accommodations to pregnant employees. All too often, employees who request accommodations are fired or face other retaliation. If you are pregnant and believe your civil rights at work have been violated, you may have a strong case for pregnancy discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.

Understanding The Signs Of Discrimination
Pregnancy discrimination can come in many forms, including:
- Refusal to provide light duty or other reasonable accommodations before or after childbirth;
- Denial of or pressure not to take pregnancy leave;
- Firing or demotion just before or during pregnancy leave;
- Refusal to properly reinstate a pregnant employee after pregnancy leave;
- Denial of promotions or raises after pregnancy leave;
- Verbal harassment of an employee due to pregnancy leave.
