Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
Reviewing the facts now
There is no basis for this threat
She may not be discriminated against on this basis.
Would suggest raising this with HR and principal's office
so there is a record of the improper threat
That should suffice, and avoid having to escalate the issue with a local lawyer, the eeoc, the labor board and court
Should a lawyer be needed to communicate with the above, martindale.com is a great resource
I hope the answer is clear. Please let me know
she just found out that she is about 4 weeks pregnant. are you suggesting she contact her schools HR about this?
if she is concerned that the supervisor may seek to retaliate or take any action
it is a good idea to have a record
and put HR on notice of the problem
often that leads to a meeting with the offending party and the offensive conduct stops
I wish her the best
and congrats on the expected new addition to your family
Kindly click on an excellent rating for the answer.
If I can clarify anything else, of course, ask me
