Pregnancy discrimination is a difficult experience that is often kept silent by many women throughout Florida and across the nation. Most women hope that when they become pregnant, they will be treated fairly by their employers and make preparations to remain out of work for several weeks to care for a newborn. Unfortunately, many working women face discrimination, retaliation, and other unacceptable responses related to their pregnancy. If you have felt the effects of pregnancy discrimination, you may feel angry or depressed. At Hollifield Legal Centre, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of women who are suffering from pregnancy discrimination.
Pregnancy discrimination is a violation of both Florida and federal law. Hollifield Legal Centre can work to protect your rights as a pregnant woman and employee.
Please contact our pregnancy discrimination lawyer Travis R. Hollifield for more information. The Centre is experienced in cases involving all of the following:
Family and Medical Leave Act claims
You may have lost your job and benefits and, in the process, suffered discrimination or retaliation. Our attorney can help you seek the justice you deserve through litigation, negotiation, or other form of dispute resolution. We represent the interests of working women and are skilled in courtroom advocacy and the intricacies of pregnancy discrimination law. Our attorney and staff provide dedicated and steadfast representation to clients from the initial consultation to the final resolution of your claim.
Maternity leave policies may allow working women to take leave before and after childbirth. This type of leave is ordinarily an option for women who are eligible under the requirements set forth under the Family and Medical Leave Act. If you do not meet those requirements, you may be entitled to maternity leave if your company provides non-pregnant employees with leave for other short-term medical conditions that require time away from the office. If you believe that your company is discriminating against you or failing to provide equal benefits, or if you suffered as a result of taking maternity leave, please contact our office. We can provide you with a thorough evaluation of your claims.
