I am having continued issues with my employer which I believe are violations of my medical confidentiality and pregnancy discriniation.
This is actually a follow-up to an original Q, as the situation has grown even worse. I'm an "independent contractor" in writing only. I told my boss at the beginning of the month that I'm pregnant & will be leaving at the end of the summer. She then sent an email to my husband's boss at a different company informing them of my pregnancy & expressing concern that he will be unable to fulfill his duties now that he is an expectant father which has resulted in decreased hours. Yesterday, she terminated my position almost a month ahead of my scheduled leave date & is becoming increasingly nasty in her communication with me. She expects me to train my new replacement and then leave a month early, which I explained will create financial hardship, which she then mocked in a follow up email
I have stellar job reviews & emails praising my performance. I believe she is acting in a punitive, & discriminatory manner due to my pregnancy & is causing us hardship and stress. I would like to pursue this further but money is obviously tight. What can we do? Is fee-shifting an option? I don't want her to get away with treating us like this after all that I've done for her business but she seems intent on punishing us during what should be a joyful time in our lives.
