Posted by   + Show Post

ok so, im 19.. im pregnant. Obviously, i need a job.. and i had one, until a week ago. Ive been job searching since i got laid off just a week ago. Even if i wasnt pregnant id still need a job, for bills, and also b.c im on probation (misdemeanor charge dont freak) and they require you to hold a job- or jail. SOO.... This morning i put in more apps at 6 am, i got a call at 4pm. From pizza hut. They want me to come in tomorrow after 1 and give drivers license, social security card, and sign background check paper. Great news right? But... what if pregnancy question comes up.. or even if it doesnt.. when do i tell this manager im pregnant? I dont want to not get my foot in the door just because im pregnant.. i need... NEED this job. My husband cant work right now until his surgery this job is a must. What would you do?

Legally they can't ask you if your pregnant.  Not sure if your showing or not, but I can't see why pizza hut would see pregnancy as a problem to that kind of job. good luck

thanks the whole probation issue is crap.. did u know you can get charged for just having naked pictures on your phone if a child see them? ya neither did i... so ya thats what i got charged with. stupid. as. hell. but thank you :)

Quoting NDADanceMom:

they cant ask about pregnancy.  If it comes up change the subject.  Say, 'does that matter?'  frankly the fact you are probation is more of an issue.

It's illegal for them to ask.  I would stay mum.

It's not illegal not to disclose that you're pregnant. It is illegal to ask you if you are.

I did staffing for several years, they can not ask nor can they fire you when you start to show.  Just don't say anything. 

Quoting ttcwlee_18:

is it illegal? and what about when i start showing?

You dont have to disclose that you are pregnant, nor can they ask
