  • You shouldn't have to "deal" with her. What she thinks of your life choices personally doesn't matter, she still needs to be treating you with a professional demeanor. What do you do? Next time you see her walking through your work area, you simply say "Oh! Guess what?! I am pregnant!" And try to be as happy as you can be about it, and then continue on with your work.

  • but she told me that the owner might fire me if he found out that is was pregnant which he cant do by law and i told her that i would sue him and i know things about him that could get him in trouble. so they shouldnt mess with a pregnant woman.

  • Sounds like a bad situation all around. First off, you shouldn't make threats like telling her the fact that you "know things" about the owner. You are correct in the fact that they can't fire you due to your pregnancy, but a lot of companies will find a loophole and fire you for something totally unrelated. Which makes it totally legal.

    If I were you, I would finish my work there, stay an employee through your maternity leave so you get paid, and as soon as that is done I would put in my notice and find a new job.
