Fort Lauderdale Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires employers to provide 12 weeks of unpaid leave after the birth of a child. Despite this protection, some women in South Florida are denied this leave. Others find that when their employers learn of their pregnancies their job responsibilities are downgraded or their careers sidelined.
These types of employment practices are prohibited under federal law. If you have suffered employment discrimination on account of your pregnancy, you have the right to claim compensation for your financial losses, emotional suffering and attorney fees. Other remedies may also be possible.
