How do you know if you've been discriminated against at work?
Sometimes it is obvious, because your employer overtly tells you something. For example, your employer might tell you that it won't let you work because you are pregnant.
Sometimes, it is less obvious. For example, your employer starts micro-managing you after you revealed that you are pregnant. Or, for example, after disclosing your pregnancy, your managers begin providing you with negative feedback when before it was only positive. Another example might include writing you up for being late, when your co-workers arrive at the same time and they are not written up.
The New York Times did a very interesting piece on how pregnancy discrimination can manifest, and if you are not sure whether your employer is discriminating against you, we recommend reading the article.
