Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
From a purely legal perspective, if you are under a fixed term employment contract that ends upon a predetermined date, then your pregnancy doesn't affect your employment situation. If they choose to not renew your contract, then your employment just ends and you would separate from the employer. But you would be able to draw unemployment benefits as long as you weren't terminated for misconduct and were actively seeking employment.
As for any insurance situation, this would be considered a "qualifying event" and make you eligible for Cobra coverage if you didn't have private insurance under Obamacare.
