Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison is here to protect you against illegal retaliation or wrongful termination based on pregnancy.
If you are expecting a child, job security is probably more important to you than ever. The good news is, both California law and federal law attempt to ensure job security for pregnant women by requiring employers to allow women to return to their prior position or a position with equal pay and benefits after pregnancy leave.
The bad news is, sometimes employers do not live up to their responsibilities under the law. They may subject women to wrongful termination or other adverse job actions when they:
- Announce their pregnancy
- Request or take pregnancy disability leave
- Request accommodations for pregnancy-related disability
- Take paid family leave
- Report pregnancy discrimination
If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated from your job due to your pregnancy, you can turn to PLBH for help.
We Hold Employers Accountable
At PLBH, we take pride in being strong advocates for the rights of pregnant women. If your employer has violated your rights, we will hold them accountable for their actions by helping you to pursue a wrongful termination claim against them. Depending on the circumstances, we can seek:
- Reinstatement in your old job or a position of equal pay and benefits
- Compensation for the income and benefits you missed out on while terminated
- Compensation for your attorney fees and legal expenses
- Punitive damages as punishment for the company’s wrongdoing
You can count on Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison for expert guidance during every step of your case, from the earliest fact-finding stages to the final resolution of the matter. Whenever possible, we strive to resolve wrongful termination cases outside of court because this approach is faster and less costly than litigation. However, our firm certainly has the skills and resources required to present your case in court if needed. No matter what, you can rely on us to provide reliable advice about your rights and options and work diligently to secure a beneficial outcome to your case.
