Your Employee Rights After The Birth Of A Child
Many complications arise after the birth of a child. From injuries and illnesses to postpartum depression, you could face any number of difficulties and challenges once your child is born. These challenges can create complications at work, as well. Unfortunately, too many employers do not provide adequate leave or reasonable accommodations after an employee has a baby.
It is important to know that you have rights, and we can help you protect them. At Le Clerc & Le Clerc LLP, we handle all types of employment law matters, including all types of issues involving medical leave. We are a trusted name in employment law services throughout the San Francisco, California, area due to our track record of success.
You have rights when it comes to pregnancy, maternity and postpartum leave. Our lawyers can protect your leave for:

Postpartum depression is a serious problem that mothers often experience. More than just a “feeling of sadness,” postpartum depression can be a debilitating condition that can make it impossible to continue working.
Each case is unique, and it requires knowledge and experience to determine whether you might have a valid claim and to protect your rights in the workplace.
