I have been employed at my company for almost 6 years. I am

Hi there, I have been employed at my company for almost 6 years. I am in sales and part of the job description requires traveling to conferences and events. I am now pregnant (about 12 weeks) and I just returned from an out of state conference that I was assigned to where although I wasn't able to participate in some things due to the pregnancy, I fully completed my task and assignment while I was there. I just got back in the office today and my employer told me that I am being taken off of a conference in June that has already been scheduled because they don't want me to have any health issues and are not sure that I will be well enough to go to the event. Is this discrimination? My job and sales are directly affected by me being able to go to these conferences and meet with my clients in person. In June I will be about 6 months pregnant and my doctor cleared me for this trip I was just on and said I am fine to travel up until July. My bosses said that I don;t have to worry because they will take care of my clients at the conference in June but my sales are mostly based on dorect network relationships. This also brings up another worry that the company is trying to get in on my clients so that they can take them from me when I am out on leave after having the baby. Please help!JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: californiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I am a full time salaried employee. I also make commision on all of my sales.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I had a colleague who was just pregnant and she was able to travel up until she was 8 months with permission from here doctor.

I currently have intermittent FMLA for debilitating

I currently have intermittent FMLA for debilitating migraines. My place of employment states that I am to call in 2 hours in advance to missing a shift. During the accommodation meeting, I told my manager and HR that I often don't know when I migraine will come on and I don't normally have 2 hours notice. I was told then that if I don't give them 2 hours notice then I need to come in and work for 2 hours before leaving. On March 28th, I called my boss at 6:20 and told her I had a migraine. I was to start my shift at 7 am so I was getting ready to head into work. After 10 minutes my boss called me back to ask if I took and medicine, I told her yes and it makes me drowsy but I can still come in. She stated just to hold off and she would call me and let me know if we had any patients and if I was needed. She stated she didn't want to risk a me getting hurt to come in if not needed. Afters not hearing for her for 45 minutes or so I texted her and she told me just to stay home that they didn't need me. Now I am being wrote up for not coming in. Is this ok since my manager told me not to come in?

I am a remote call agent and do not sell anything yet my

I am a remote call agent and do not sell anything yet my employer is now pressuring us to persuade leads to get the free solar quotes we process by phone. Also, we are told that we cannot hang up on leads even if they are being verbally abusive and harassing us...I feel I am in compliance with the FTC laws by apologizing calmly and saying they'll be put on our DNC list but I then hang up promptly on them so that the situation does not get out of hand and I can move on to the next call.
