Proven Representation in Pregnancy Discrimination Claims
Aggressive Workplace Discrimination Attorneys in Texas and Nationwide
Bringing a child into the world should be a joyous event—it shouldn’t put your job or your career at risk. Unfortunately, many employers treat women differently when they are pregnant, or even discriminate if they believe a female employee may be considering starting a family or having a child. It’s a violation of federal law, but that doesn’t stop many employers. If you or a loved one has been treated differently at work because of pregnancy or related issues, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. Bailey & Galyen can help.

We’ll carefully explain your rights and options, as well as your likelihood of success, so that you can make informed decisions about your case. We strive to return all calls and e-mails as swiftly as possible.
Our Representation in Pregnancy-Based Discrimination Claims
The federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) prohibits using a woman’s actual or potential pregnancy as a basis for making a wide range of work-related decisions, from hiring and firing to compensation, job assignments, raises or promotions, training and career advancement, fringe benefits and protection from layoffs. If you cannot perform your job (temporarily) because of any medical condition associated with childbirth or pregnancy, your employer must treat you like any other temporarily disabled worker. That may require your employer to find other work assignments for you, allow you to take unpaid leave or provide you with disability leave.
At Bailey & Galyen, we aggressively represent women who have suffered adverse consequences in the workplace because of pregnancy or potential childbirth issues. We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for any losses you suffer as a result of pregnancy-based discrimination, including lost income and loss of benefits. We will also fight for your rights if your employer refuses to make a reasonable accommodation for your pregnancy.
