Protecting Your Job During Maternity Leave
Unfortunately, employers sometimes discriminate against employees who are pregnant or who have recently given birth. Laws exist which under many circumstances offer protection against such discrimination and provides pregnant employees the right to an extended leave, the right to return to the employment following the leave, and the right not to be retaliated against for being pregnant and needing the leave.
If you are in this situation, you may benefit from consulting with an employee rights attorney who is experienced in representing employees who are pregnant or who have returned to work following a pregnancy leave. The Law Offices of Alan Adelman in San Francisco focuses exclusively on handling employment law cases on behalf of employees, including employees who are pregnant and in need of accommodation or maternity leave due to a pregnancy or childbirth.
The Legal Landscape
In many circumstances, it is against the law for an employer to deny an employee the right to pregnancy leave, or the right to return to employment following a pregnancy leave. It is also against the law under many circumstances for an employer to retaliate against an employee for requesting or taking a pregnancy leave, or for needing other accommodations in light of the pregnancy.
The law may protect your rights as an employee to have a child without being treated in a detrimental manner by your employer. Contact attorney Alan Adelman to discuss the specifics of your situation.
