Minnesota Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney

Pregnancy Discrimination

Female employees are protected against workplace discrimination based on their pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical issues. Pregnant workers with temporary disabilities must be treated equally by employers assuming a pregnancy does not interfere with regular job performance. Employers may designate pregnant workers to be ineligible for lifting heavy objects for instance. Pregnant workers have a right to unpaid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act {FMLA}, which permits them to care for their newborns and then return to their previous job.

Workers can recognize types of workplace pregnancy discrimination below:

  • A pregnant employee who is transferred, harassed, terminated, or demoted by her employer based on her pregnancy.
  • A pregnant employee who is denied equal health insurance or other benefits by her employer.
  • A pregnant employee who is asked to perform tasks a temporarily disabled worker would not be required to do.
  • A pregnant employee who asks for sick time off but is refused the right to return to work until after the baby is born; or the employer sets a fixed time after birth before she can return to work.
  • A pregnant job applicant is asked about her pregnancy during interviews in terms of how many more children she plans to have.
