Pregnancy discrimination remains a serious issue in the workplace. The government implemented the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, which makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against pregnant employees. Under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, it is illegal for an employer to refuse to hire a pregnant woman. Also, if an employee's pregnancy causes disability, the employer must modify tasks, offer disability leave and allow pregnancy leave without pay.
Under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, an employer cannot discriminate against women for pregnancy-related conditions. An employer is, however, entitled to ask employees to submit a doctor's statement testifying their inability to work, in order to grant them disability leave.
Employment lawyers understand that pregnancy discrimination is an issue that women may face. Employment lawyers can help women who have been discriminated against based on their pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. If an employer treats employees unequally, employment lawyers can help bring justice to the violation of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978.
