I was put on pregnancy disability at 7 months pregnant due to high risk, threatened preterm labor, possible pre-eclampsia. I was just informed a week after childbirth that I am terminated from the company. I thought in california I was entitled to up to 4 months pregnancy disability if needed.My company states that I am only entitled to FMLA 12 weeks only, and that I was to return to work before my baby was even supposed to be born, or be fired. *UPDATE- I just got a letter stating that my company says I quit my job in November 2013 when I started my preg. disability, even though I have a letter from them stating I was Terminated in Feb'14. I assume so they do not have to pay UI? I WAS FIRED for Pregnancy Disability leave, not given baby bonding What should my next step be from here?
