- Economic damages, including lost wages and benefits
- Non-economic damages, which means putting a dollar figure on the emotional distress you have suffered as a result of the discrimination

Among your rights as a pregnant worker or a new parent are:
- The right by law to four months of Pregnancy Disability Leave if you are considered disabled
