No, under the Texas Labor Code Chapter 21 and Pregnancy Discrimination Act you are not able to be terminated due to pregnancy and childbirth. Your employer is not permitted to discriminate based on your pregnancy, date of childbirth, medical conditions based on pregnancy, and pregnancy leave. Your employer must provide light duty, alternative and remote assignments, and temporary leave. If you believe that your employer is treating you differently or wrongfully terminated you based on your pregnancy, you are eligible for compensation. We are always happy to hear your case. Call us at (817) 335-5100 for a free consultation.
