How do you prove pregnancy discrimination?
To successfully prove a claim of pregnancy discrimination, you must demonstrate that the employer’s actions were more likely than not caused by a pregnancy, childbirth or a related condition. You may have direct evidence of the discrimination, such as an employer that admits the pregnancy played a role in the adverse action, or circumstantial evidence, such as a pattern of out-of-character or suspiciously timed behaviors from the employer. While it can be difficult to prove without an admission of guilt from the employer, it is not impossible. An attorney can help you gather evidence to show you were discriminated against.
