Victims of pregnancy discrimination in the workplace are protected under several pregnancy discrimination acts. Pregnant employees have the right to take leave from work. Parents of newborn children also have the right to have leave to care for and bond with their newborn children.
Pregnancy discrimination in the workplace also includes discrimination based on the potential for a female employee to become pregnant, which is called maternal profiling. Employers are prohibited from terminating employees based on pregnancy.
An employer may not refuse to hire a woman because she has children or if she plans to have children.
