Pregnancy Protection Laws In California

As an expectant mother, have you suffered pregnancy discrimination at your job? If so, you have rights — and you may be able to obtain compensation.

We are the skilled employment lawyers at the Law Offices of Reisner & King LLP. We work hard to hold employers responsible when they violate the Pregnancy Disability Leave Law (PDL), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

Call us today at 818-981-0901 for a free consultation. We represent clients throughout the Los Angeles area and Southern California.

Your Rights Under Federal And California Law

Both the FMLA and CFRA require employers to provide parents with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave following the birth or adoption of a child. These laws also prohibit employers from discriminating against employees who seek to take leave for the purpose of caring for or bonding with a child.

In addition, an employer must offer a "comparable position" to an employee returning from pregnancy leave. The employer is not obligated to reinstate the employee into the exact position the employee held before leave.

Protecting The Rights Of Pregnant Employees Since 1999

For more than 15 years, Adam Reisner, Tessa King, experienced associates and excellent support staff have worked as a team to protect employee rights in cases throughout California.

We will listen to you, open ourselves to your ideas and use our many resources to your benefit throughout the legal process. Come to our Sherman Oaks law firm when your employer underestimates the effects of a pregnancy-related illness or refuses to grant family and medical leave for prenatal care or bonding after birth.

Are you disabled as a result of your pregnancy? Have you been harassed or discriminated against by a supervisor or co-worker since becoming pregnant? Would you welcome the kind of outcome that pays money damages and transitions you to a more harmonious work environment once your maternity leave has ended?
