I have a question on what my rights are as a pregnant

I have a question on what my rights are as a pregnant salaried employee. The company I work for is not working with me very well. I work for a larger corporation as a Field Engineer on a construction site. Being an onsite employee we work 50+ hours while still getting paid for a 40 hour work week because we are salaried employees. Since I became pregnant while being onsite the 50 hours work weeks have not been the easiest. My project manager onsite let me reduce my hours down to 40 when I was having trouble with morning sickness at the beginning of the pregnancy. HR in the main office heard of this and did not like it. They said I was not able to do this because they cannot offer this to anyone else. This did not make sense to me as I am working the full time 40 hours (as they do in the office every week), paying for short term disability every week and have an option for FMLA through the company. I ended up going back to 50's for the remainder of my time here to please everyone. I am now reaching my 36th week of pregnancy and I my body is starting to give out on me where midweek I don't even wake up to an alarm because I am so exhausted. This has caused me to need a day off for a couple weeks. The company deducted my pay for that day (only paying me for 32 hours).. even though I was at work for 40+ hours on the week even when I took the day I needed. I am just curious if they can do this and deduct my pay to 32 hours for the week when I put in a 40 hour work week as a salaried employee? This has happened two weeks in a row now.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Well.. the company I work for has it's headquarters in Omaha, but my district is based out of MN and I am working in LouisianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no it has not I was just curious on what, if anything, I had rights forJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No that should be it

I work for a large company that is in the middle of

I work for a large company that is in the middle of organizational restructuring, and I have been on a medical leave of absence and on short term disability since the end of November. I was called yesterday to tell me of my separation from the company and that they would send paperwork in the mail. They said they would have had me come into work to receive this news, but my current health conditions restricts me from travel pending clearance from my doctor. They said I would receive a severance package which I have the option of accepting, but now due to my medical condition, I cannot look for other work or even interview, and now at the end of the month my medical coverage will be terminated, and with my health condition I am routinely in and out of hospitals and doctors, where having health insurance is extremely critical for me at this time. Is my employer in any violation or is there anything possible I can do?
