Some people across California, including business owners and individuals alike, may have read our blog post at the beginning of the year in which we talked about pregnancy discrimination in the workplace.

But as you can imagine, sometimes the best laid plans don't always go the way we want them to. For business owners, this can mean making the difficult decision to sell a business or close up shop altogether.
