Millburn, New Jersey Pregnancy Discrimination Lawyers

Whether you live in Millburn or somewhere else in New York or New Jersey, pregnancy discrimination in the workplace is a form of discrimination that is prohibited by the law.

Employers often discriminate against and harass women after they announce they are pregnant, when they seek to return to work from a maternity leave or after they return to work from maternity leaves. For example, employers frequently jump to the conclusion that female employees have limitations on their ability to perform their jobs, do not plan to return to work after their maternity leaves, will not work as hard or will not be as dependable because they have young children at home. However, it is unlawful discrimination when employers make conclusions based on these types of stereotypes and assumptions about women.

Knowledgeable Employment Law Attorneys

Our attorneys frequently handle pregnancy discrimination claims. For example, one of our appeals, Padilla v. Berkely Educational Services of New Jersey, Inc., upheld a verdict on behalf of a woman who experienced pregnancy discrimination at her job. The court's opinion makes it clear that our client was entitled to recover damages for the emotional distress she experienced and sent her case back for a new trial so a jury could determine how much she should receive to compensate her for those damages.
