Los Angeles Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney
Pregnancy discrimination is more common in the workplace than many people think. Often the discrimination begins when a well-respected employee is treated differently after announcing that she is pregnant. After the announcement or after a maternity leave, the employee is treated as if she is no longer focused on her career or her employer believes her work is no longer a priority to her.
If this has happened to you, you may have a pregnancy discrimination claim under the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). At the Farley Law Firm, we have the experience and skill to help you assert your rights under the applicable law. To learn more, we encourage you to contact us today online or call 310-445-4024 to schedule a free consultation.
Gregg A. Farley is a Los Angeles and Orange County pregnancy discrimination lawyer who is well qualified to advocate in support of your freedom from discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, or perceived potential to become pregnant. We can help you if you are facing any of the following situations:
If your work activities have been unfairly or unreasonably restricted by your California employer once he or she learns of your pregnancy without your consent
If you have been discharged employment because you are pregnant
If you have been denied being hired because you are pregnant
If your employer or co-workers repeatedly make disparaging remarks concerning your pregnancy
If your employer penalizes you for attending doctor’s appointments or other necessary out-of-office meetings related to your pregnancy

We also have the knowledge and legal acumen necessary to advise you and represent you regarding your right to reasonable accommodations when you and your doctor determine that your pregnancy makes these changes necessary because there are unsafe work conditions or other variables that must be taken into account.
While we are prepared to take employment cases to trial, the great majority of our clients’ cases settle outside of court. We are prepared to assert your right to accommodations necessary to support breast feeding, your right to family and medical leave, and your right to exercise your own reasonable judgment as to your working capabilities throughout, and post pregnancy.
