Defending Workers Suffering From Pregnancy Discrimination
When you share news of your pregnancy at work, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your job, getting demoted or suffering other penalties that affect your employment. Although these practices are unlawful, they are not uncommon.
Whether you are a new hire or a long-term employee in Las Vegas, you can be a victim of this type of employment discrimination. If you don’t know your employment rights, however, you may not know what protections you receive under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) and the Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act.
At Ace Law Group, our team of employment law attorneys has practiced law for over four decades. We use our extensive knowledge of this field to hold employers and supervisors accountable for discriminatory practices and other employment law issues. We will fiercely fight to protect your right to receive the accommodations you deserve should you decide to file a family -leave discrimination claim.
The Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act Bans These Actions:
- An employer’s refusal to make accommodations for pregnant job applicants or female employees
- An employer’s retaliation against a pregnant employee because she requested a reasonable accommodation
State Law Act Allows Employers To Request This Information:
- A doctor’s authorization supporting the employee’s request for accommodation based on a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth
The months leading up to childbirth should be joyous. If your employer threatens you with a demotion or suggests pregnancy is jeopardizing your job security, however, this time can be stressful instead. You shouldn’t be subjected to these discriminatory practices.
Ace Law Group attorneys have received large settlements on behalf of our clients. When you contact our lawyers, we will work to secure maximum compensation to cover your lost wages or emotional distress.
