I was mistreated at work while pregnant. ERA helped me advocate for myself & my son.

Candice Branner, ERA client

Update: Candice won her case! She won $450,000 on behalf of herself and 40 other coworkers who were mistreated by their company while pregnant. Read more.

Like many who experience pregnancy discrimination, airport security worker Candice Branner had her health put at risk when her supervisors denied her request for basic workplace accommodations, such as short sitting breaks at reasonable intervals. Seeking free legal help through Equal Rights Advocates, Candice filed a lawsuit that ended up creating positive change at her company for potentially thousands of other workers.
