I am 5 months pregnant and was told today I am being Put on corrective action due to tone issues. Can I be fired while pregnant for such reasons?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Being pregnant does not insulate you from corrective action or termination. In Illinois, your employer does not need a reason to terminate but cannot terminate you for a prohibited reason (pregnancy). To ensure your rights are protected, do yourself a favor and contact a qualified employment attorney. Many of us will give an initial consultation at no cost.
