Legal Question in Employment Law in California

I started working for a company in August and I was 3 months pregnant, in September I went to the ER and was unable to go into work. I had called that same day to inform my supervisor and they had mentioned I would be contacted by another supervisor, they never did. Soon after I kept calling to get my schedule but all they would say is that they would contact me when they had something, it's been almost four months and I have never heard from them. In other words I was let go without being let go properly or without any explanation. What legal actions can I take I any?

It sounds like you may have a legitimate claim for disability discrimination/wrongful termination. You should contact a reputable employment lawyer in you area to discuss that option.

You need to discuss the full facts with counsel to determine if you would be able to show this was a violation of the disability, pregnancy and medical leave protections you have as a CA employee. It does sound like a clear violation. If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, feel free to contact me. I've been doing these cases for many years.
