If your employer is treating you like a second-class employee because you’re pregnant, that’s wrong.
It’s also illegal.
Your right to fair treatment in the workplace while you’re pregnant is strongly protected by the law. The federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Ohio law lets you hold your employer accountable.
You may be able to get a monetary settlement, reinstatement to a job you lost, or legally enforced changes to your employer’s policies or behavior.
When you stand up for your rights, you can put stress about your job situation behind you and focus on having a joyful pregnancy.
The pregnancy discrimination lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal can make sure that you get the full protection of the law.

It’s illegal for your employer to do any of these things:
Pregnancy discrimination is a form of sex discrimination that’s strictly prohibited.
If an employer makes comments about you putting your family above your work, asks you whether you plan to get pregnant, or tells you to wait until after your pregnancy to apply for a job, all of those could be signs of discrimination.
When you return to work after birth, your employer also must provide you a private room to pump breast milk.
The most important part of your case is proving that your pregnancy is the reason for the negative treatment you’ve experienced.
