Here is an interesting article from the NY Times about pregnancy discrimination and how it is rampant, particularly among large companies.
I have been handling pregnancy discrimination cases for over 20 years, ever since I got my first case involving a waitress in College Station, Texas. In that case, the restaurant who employed my waitress client fired her when she was six months pregnant, telling her it was too dangerous for a pregnant woman to be carrying a tray full of dinner plates. They eventually paid to settle that case.
Right now, I have a case against TDECU, where we represent a woman fired during pregnancy. We received a Right to Sue letter from the EEOC and plan to sure TDECU for pregnancy discrimination next week.
