A: You may wish to sit down and speak with an employment lawyer. Depending on the size of the employer and how long you worked there, laws like the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and laws preventing discrimination on basis of pregnancy may apply. An employment lawyer should be able to tell you which laws might apply based on the specifics of your situation and should also be able to evaluate whether or not they are willing to file suit on your behalf.

Attorneys fees are not set by law and so the amount of attorney fees will be set by each attorney. Usually that is something a potential client discusses in initial consultation with attorneys of their choosing.

While not legal advice or evaluation of your specific claims, I hope that this helps answer your questions.
