Can you boss make you come in before your prenatal appointment even though you requested off ?

In my professional opinion you have stated at least two viable claims of discrimination (gender and pregnancy discrimination); and you may have stated a retaliation claim too.
Accordingly, I advise you to contact the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) here in Tallahassee Florida. Their toll-free telephone number is 800 342 8170; and they can also be reached by regular telephone at 850 488 7082. You should ask to speak to an Intake Counselor.
IMPORTANT: You do not need a lawyer to file a Charge of Discrimination at the FCHR; however, retaining a very experienced lawyer to help you file the charge and to assist you along the way during the FCHRs investigation will expedite the cumbersome bureaucratic process and improve your chances.
