Pregnancy discrimination happens when an expecting person is treated differently in the workplace because of their pregnancy, intentions to become pregnant, childbirth or related conditions. This can come in the form of firing or not hiring someone, restricting promotions or fostering a workplace environment that would limit opportunities for someone who is pregnant.
There are laws that ensure rights for pregnant people in California and under Federal law, including things like providing a place for pumping breast milk.
