All employers face issues related to the pregnancy of an employee or a potential new hire. State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against pregnant women by refusing to hire them or by treating pregnant employees differently based on their pregnancy. Employers should be aware of what acts amount to unlawful discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.
Taft attorneys guide employers on providing adequate maternity leave, guaranteeing proper insurance coverage and other pregnancy related issues employers may encounter.
Taft attorneys are also experienced in investigating and defending pregnancy discrimination claims and litigation when it occurs.
