Pregnancy discrimination is illegal!
Pregnancy discrimination occurs when an employer treats a woman unfairly because she is pregnant or because of a medical condition associated with her pregnancy.
Furthermore, the New York City Law is so much more protective of employees with respect to Pregnancy discrimination. For example comments or conduct that may not be considered Pregnancy discrimination under the state or Federal law, may be covered by the New York City law. New York City has some of the best employment laws for people subject to discrimination based on their Pregnancy.
It is illegal to discriminate against an employee based on their pregnancy in any term or condition of employment, such as pay, raises, promotions, hiring, firing, benefits, etc.
Furthermore, it is illegal to retaliate against someone because they have complained about Pregnancy Discrimination.
Available remedies may include lost wages, emotional distress, punitive damages, and attorneys fees.
