  • Refusal to grant maternity leave

Pregnant women face discrimination in the workplace for many other reasons. Whatever legal issue you are facing, we are here to help you address all your legal issues and concerns.

How we can help

Experience matters when it comes to pregnancy discrimination cases in the workplace. Our attorneys thoroughly understand West Virginia’s workplace discrimination laws, as well as all applicable federal rules and regulations, including the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA).

When you meet with us, we can explain all the legal options available to you. That way, you can make an informed decision about what approach you would like us to take on your behalf. We will then work tirelessly with you to resolve all your legal issues quickly and effectively.

As your attorney, we may negotiate directly with your employer on your behalf. Or we may file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against your employer. Other times, filing a lawsuit against the company may be the best solution.

But we will never take any action with consulting with you first. You’re in charge of your case. You decide what approach you want us to take. Find out how we can help. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation right now.
