What does the California labor board do?
The California labor board is the ruling body that interprets the laws for employers and employees. Laws such as the pregnancy leave act, which removed the ability of employers to fire employees just because they became pregnant, are passed by the governor of California, but they are then interpreted by the labor board so that the final language passed to the employers is easier to understand. They also help enforce the current labor laws, from minimum wage to FMLA.
Can the California labor help me if I was fired because I was pregnant?
The answer to this question would be yes. The California labor board has a duty to help protect the rights of employees. If your employer terminated your employment because you were pregnant, then they have violated your rights under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978. This act states that employers cannot terminate an employee because they are pregnant. If you have been terminated from your employment because of your pregnancy, please contact California Wage Law Attorney for assistance. Feel free to contact the Law Offices Of Scott A. Miller, A Professional Corporation. The consultation is confidential and free.
