State and federal laws provide protections for employees who have suffered discrimination. Your employer cannot lawfully terminate you or treat you differently because of your age, disability, race, sex, religion, pregnancy, national origin, or membership in another protected group.

In practice, however, your employer will not hand you a letter explaining that you are being terminated because the company does not like women who get pregnant.  They will claim they have a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for terminating your employment.  It then becomes your responsibility to show that their proposed justification is false or “pretextual,” and the actual reason for your termination was discriminatory.
