What is considered pregnancy discrimination?
Many circumstances experienced by pregnant women are illegal and actionable in court:
- Employer fails to hire because of pregnancy.
- Employer denies promotion because of pregnancy.
- Employer denies unmarried woman medical benefits for pregnancy.
- Employer demotes because of pregnancy.
- Employer fires or lays off woman because of pregnancy.
- Employer prohibits or limits employee’s maternity leave.
- Employer denies pregnancy leave to employee experiencing high-risk pregnancy.
- Employer denies or interferes with pregnancy-related disability leave.

Lawyers who protect high-level female executives from pregnancy discrimination
More and more high-level female executives are bringing lawsuits when their employers discriminate against them, demote or even fire them because of their pregnancies. At The Rubin Law Corporation, our Los Angeles pregnancy discrimination attorneys frequently work with high-level executives and have the capacity to assist them discreetly and effectively with their employment issues.
For example, we recently represented an entertainment industry executive who announced her maternity leave. She had been in line for a promotion to vice president, but the company announced a “reorganization” and eliminated her position. We assisted her to launch an unlawful employment practices investigation against her supervisors and ultimately saved her position.
