Pregnancy Discrimination in New Jersey

If you are pregnant, protections exist under the law. If you’ve come back from a pregnancy leave only to find yourself unemployed, you may be eligible for back pay, front pay and damages.

Pregnant women are protected by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and state laws such as the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination. Additionally, pregnant women and people with serious illness are covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Contact us and talk with a disability discrimination attorney at our firm regarding a discrimination or FMLA claim.
