I was fired for my employer while pregnant. I was in and out of the hospital for a pregnancy related illness, with documented proof. My supervisor came to me and said it is understood as long as I have proper documentation I would be fine. Couple weeks later. I was fired because the supervisor thought I forged a doctors note, which was later on proven to be legit, and advised that she didn't know I was pregnant or sick.
Keep in fact she's made some bad comments about me being pregnant.
I even gave permission to call the doctor to verify to which she stated "That is not her job" and she stated that to the Department of Labor to which later on she retracted her statement, but the Department of Labor had the message recorded.
Can I sue for stress and loss of work/wrongful termination?She also asked me to then become a part-time worker to which I refused and stated "The company doesn't care about your pregnancy, their interest is making money, and if your not on board, you need to go" Even though I was one of their best workers. It is believed I was fired because of my pregnancy because in 99% of the cases the employer verifies doctors notes with calls. The forged note was an excuse.
