Northern California's tech industry has been under a microscope recently but not for the reasons you might expect. Indeed, much of the nation has been mesmerized by the high-profile lawsuit filed against a prominent Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm by a former partner alleging that she was victimized by gender discrimination.
Discrimination appears in many varieties and forms in Florida workplaces. Some types of workplace discrimination involve age, while others involve race, and still others involve sex. One very common variety of gender discrimination involves claims of discrimination against women who are pregnant. It is not all that uncommon for a pregnant worker to lose her job shortly after she advises her employer of the pregnancy. This is unlawful, and pregnant women who are discriminated against at work can seek justice by filing an employment law claim.
