Pregnancy discrimination in San Francisco

San Francisco has a fast-paced start-up scene and boasts a growing economy due to innovation and high recruitment rates, with many people moving to San Francisco and the Bay Area for work. However, with this rapid recruitment comes mistakes made by employers, and this can be in the form of discrimination.

Can I take family leave to care for a stepparent?

There are times in many people's working lives where they have crucial personal issues that must be prioritized above their work. This can be especially true when a family member is suffering from a serious illness, and you must take time off in order to care for them. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) means that employees have the right to take unpaid, job-protected leave for up to 12 weeks in order to care for a seriously ill parent, child or spouse.

The question of whether to sue for family leave discrimination

Family leave is something that both men and women have a legal entitlement to. However, it can be a touchy subject in the workplace, with many employees feeling directly or indirectly pressured to avoid it and work regardless of their need to care for their family. They may feel that they are at risk of being fired, demoted or refused promotion due to taking family leave, or they indeed might believe that they have experienced retaliatory actions against them due to them taking or requesting family leave.
