Being Pregnant Can Cost You Your Job

Pregnant, and Pushed Out of a Job

“Thanks to a gap between discrimination laws and disability laws, it’s possible for a pregnant woman to be forced from her job.”

According to the article there are bills in the NYS Assembly (A. 9114) and Senate ( S. 6273) to rectify this situation.  If you live in NY, you should contact you Representative and let them know how you feel about this issue.
