Do You Need a Tempe Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney?

When handling cases of pregnancy discrimination, victims in these situations usually do not have the resources necessary to properly pursue justice for what happened to them. Most employers will have their own legal teams to defend themselves, which is why it is critical that victims secure assistance from a Tempe pregnancy discrimination lawyer. An attorney can use their resources to:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation into the claim and obtain any evidence needed to prove that the discrimination occurred. This can include human resources documents, statements from coworkers or supervisors, internal company memos, and more.
  • Work with economic and financial experts who can help calculate total expected losses.
  • Handle negotiations with every party involved in an attempt to reach a fair settlement agreement on behalf of their client.

What Constitutes Pregnancy Discrimination in the Workplace?

Employers can engage in pregnancy discrimination both consciously and unconsciously. Pregnancy discrimination in Arizona includes any actions that treat women unfavorably at work due to:

  • Their pregnancy
  • Their plans to become pregnant
  • Any pregnancy-related medical issue or childbirth

Unfavorable treatment in the workplace as a result of pregnancy discrimination can take many forms, including the following:

  • Demotion
  • Failure to promote
  • Hostile work environment 
  • Exclusion from education and training
  • Failure to provide accommodations for pregnancy-related medical conditions
  • Bonuses and benefits becoming unavailable
  • Refusal to hire
  • Wrongful termination

When we turn to data available from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, we can see that “pregnancy” is a protected category under state law.
