Employment Attorney Explains Pregnancy Discrimination
In California, it is illegal for an employer to fire, demote or discriminate an employee because she is pregnant. There are a range of laws that protect pregnant employees that come into effect once the worker has made the employer aware of her pregnancy. This can be done verbally, over email or in a formal letter. However, if an employee lets her employer know of her pregnancy in person, she should still document this over email to have proof that she made her employer aware.
