Kelly was employed for several months when she found out she was five weeks pregnant. Kelly notified her supervisor right away. She was still capable of performing her duties early in the pregnancy. Two weeks after notifying her supervisor, Kelly was let go. Kelly’s supervisor felt she “would not be able to perform her job anymore.” Kelly was not given the option of modified work, but more importantly, she didn’t know she could ask for it.
Partner for Progress organization and the Employee Rights Center is working with Kelly now to explore her rights and options.
