Workplace Discrimination After a Miscarriage

Recovering from a miscarriage can take a few weeks to a month or more.
Workplace discrimination can push women back to work too soon or cause job loss.
Experts say legal remedies fall short and place undue burden on employees who feel they’ve been discriminated against.

About 10 to 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

During a miscarriage, physical symptoms can range from mild to severe.

Recovery time varies from person to person, depending on factors such as weeks of pregnancy, underlying conditions, and whether there are complications.

The healing process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a month or more.

Recovery can be a lot more difficult if you can’t take time off work for fear of losing your job.
