Dallas Pregnancy Discrimination Information

Pregnancy Discrimination

Discrimination against pregnant women is a form of sexual discrimination and a violation of federal and state law. Employers who do not hire or promote pregnant women or who deny benefits or terminate them are violating the law.

Pregnancy Discrimination Legal Options

If you believe your employer took a discriminatory action against you because you are pregnant, you should consult a Dallas lawyer who handles pregnancy discrimination cases. The lawyer can determine if you are entitled to compensation and help you file a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the state agency that does the same work.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you've suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.
