St. Paul/Minneapolis Lawyer: Gender And Pregnancy Discrimination

At the Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., we represent Minnesotans who have become the victims of gender, sexual orientation or pregnancy discrimination. Our experienced attorneys use their in-depth knowledge of the law to help you achieve the best possible results in state and federal courts.

State and federal laws protect people who have experienced discrimination. At our St. Paul law firm, we have extensive knowledge of these laws. We have been effectively representing clients throughout Minnesota for more than 35 years. Our lawyers can help you understand how the law may apply in your case, and we can talk with you about the best course of action to take.

Pregnancy Discrimination

How long can I spend on maternity leave? Do I have a right to my job when I come back? What if my job has been given to someone else? At Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., we can answer these questions. Our lawyers will help you understand your rights and take action when you need someone on your side.

We know that pregnant women face enough challenges in the workplace without having the challenge of working for an employer who acts unfairly and even illegally. That is why we stand by women who have experienced discrimination because of pregnancy.

In our experience as employment lawyers, we have seen employers use excuses to wrongly fire pregnant women and new moms. We know it can be difficult to tell when your employer is speaking the truth — or making excuses.

Often, pregnant women experience situations where supervisors are more critical of their work or they find their job duties or responsibilities are changed for no specific reason. When they complain, they are told their pregnancies have made them "stressed and emotional."

We can help you get to the bottom of things and protect your rights as an employee and a parent.

Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination is much more prevalent in the United States than people think. Often, employment practices that seem legitimate are actually biased toward men or women. Our experienced lawyers are dedicated to protecting your rights by holding employers accountable for many different kinds of gender discrimination:

  • Unequal pay
  • Failure to promote
  • Unequal commission
  • Unequal work assignments
