Employers cannot refuse to hire women because of any pregnancy-related conditions as long as the employee is able to perform the regular functions required by her job. An employer's prejudice against pregnant women is not the only factor involved in issues of pregnancy discrimination. This issue also relates to the prejudices of clients, coworkers, and customers toward the pregnant worker. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) is an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that outlawed discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, or any other related conditions.

According to this amendment, women who are affected by pregnancy or any of its accompanying conditions must be treated the same way as other employees or applicants when it comes to their inability or ability to perform their work. This means that employers are prohibited from singling out pregnancy related conditions when it comes to medical clearance procedures. Such procedures must be upheld with the same standard for other employees' conditions, and may relate to pregnant employees taking leave or receiving sick pay. When you have any further questions about this detailed process, turn to The Leach Firm, PA to receive a free consultation from our pregnancy discrimination lawyer in Orlando, FL.

Our Pregnancy Discrimination Attorney Stops Unfair Treatment

If you are temporarily unable to perform your job as a result of your pregnancy, then your employer must treat you the same way as any other disabled employee. This includes lighter workloads, modified tasks, disability leave, alternative assignments, or leave without pay. In cases where such accommodations are not made or you are not treated in the proper manner, our pregnancy discrimination attorney will be glad to aggressively represent you. For over 15 years, our legal staff has developed extensive litigation experienced in the field, and we continue to represent local clients with the personal attention they need.
