Wrongful firing?!?

Is missing a lot of work days due to pregnancy appointments a rightful way to fire an employee? The company refuses to follow the disability/pregnancy Act. They will not excuse any doctors note nor will they allow me to take days off for appointments.

I'm supposably going to get wrote up tomorrow for missing a lot of days. This will make my 4th one (all over my pregnancy) which leads to termination.

Does the company have more than 50 employees?

first of all, you need to make appointments after work. Whether or not they are breaking any laws depends on your state you live in and how many employees they have, etc....

 How long have you worked there?  Which state?  How many employees?

Is it a very small company?   Because if so, then I'm not sure what their requirements are on that.     Some extremely small companies that employ very few people are exempt from some legal requirements.

Are you high risk?   Do you require MULTIPLE appointments?

Are you strictly M-F, or do you have some days off during the week and can schedule your appointments accordingly?

I'd fire you for your use of "supposably."

What state you live in will be a big factor... In most states you are considered an "at will" employee--which means they can fire you for almost anything without repercussions.
