Aggressive Washington, DC Employment Discrimination Lawyer
Discrimination Based on Pregnancy Status | Reassignment | Denial of Promotions or Raises | Wrongful Termination
Under federal law—the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978—covered employers are banned from treating female employees differently because they are pregnant. Furthermore, the statute requires those employers to grant disability and parenting leaves to pregnant workers. Unfortunately, many employers still view pregnancy in a negative light and often ignore the legal mandates. If you or someone you love has been wrongfully treated at work because of pregnancy, attorney Boniface K. Cobbina can help protect your rights.
At the Law Offices of Boniface K. Cobbina, P.C., in Washington, D.C., we have fought against discrimination in employment for more than 35 years. We understand the importance of building a family, but we also recognize that your job helps you provide for your family, and helps establish dignity and self-respect. We aggressively, but compassionately, advocate for the rights of working women who have faced unfair or disparate treatment after becoming pregnant. We’ll work closely with you to learn exactly what happened, so that we can carefully craft our case to get the outcome you deserve. We have the skill and experience to negotiate a settlement that’s in your best interests, but we are also willing and able to take your case to trial to get the results you want.
You don’t have to accept workplace discrimination just because you are pregnant. Contact attorney Boniface K. Cobbina online or call us today at 202-463-6900 to schedule an appointment to learn about your rights.
