I am currently married to an executive at the place I work at. We disclosed our relationship to HR over a year ago, and they stated they didn't know the policy and just gave us the advice to remain professional. We ended up getting married, and I am now pregnant. Today, the HR department called him into the office and told us that the company decided our relationship was in fact a conflict of interest. They gave us two options: one of us quit, or my husband would be let go. What should I do legally? I am pregnant, and would not be able to collect unemployment nor would I be able to get a new job because I am pregnant. My husband makes double the amount I make and we could not pay the bills if he were to stop working. Isn't this illegal??
