Do I have any recourse if I feel I am being discriminated against at work for being pregnant?
I recently had a call from a young woman who got pregnant. During her pregnancy, the employer, supervisor, and manager at her workplace started harassing her, giving her more work, and defining unrealistic expectations as to her job duties. The question she wanted answered was whether or not she is protected under the law, and I was very happy to tell her that she was. There is no reason, under Texas law or national laws, that a woman who is pregnant should have to withstand harassment, discrimination or retaliation in the workplace just because she is pregnant.
