  • they don't have the right to turn you down because you're pregnant. if this is the reason they gave you (some plaves make up some other off the wall reason, but in reality it's cuz you're pregnant) then you can sue them if you're up to it

  • Mrs.Owen86: I would hope that those places would hire someone who is pregnant. That would be kind of messed up if they didn't.
    OP: other than those listed I don't know of any.

  • I got offered a REALLY great job working for the govt like I did before however I did not tell them I was pregnant. I fear they will find another reason and I'll never know if it WAS b/c of the baby :( So I need other backup options in case they do turn me away.

  • Don't tell them. They can't ask and they can't fire you once they hired you

  • I thought about hiding it but then I realized b/c it's the govt, they will find out before I get hired because I have to do a urine test for drugs & such :(

  • My sister was about 4 or 5 months when she was hired as a leasing consultant at an apt. she didnt tell them and she wore an outfit that didnt make her look preg. They couldnt fire her after she was hired because she was preg.
