I am an operation manager and was accused of discrimination

I am an operation manager and was accused of discrimination of another hourly employee. She has a doctors note with work restriction of 25lb. Her job is stocking. We work at PetSmart so there is a lot of lifting over 25lb. Her hours were cut, but when I could give her hours I did. She is pregnant and we were talking about her hours. I mistakenly said its not my fault you are pregnant. Now I agree my words should have been you have work restriction. But now is being discrimination when her work restriction is because she is pregnant. They are giving me a final written warning which is severe. Do I have a case.

The defense is arguing that such complaints cannot be filed against individuals. and, therefore, should be dismissed. May I simply amend the complaint to reinforce that it is against the business by including dba in the complaint?

My daughter is employed in Singapore by an NGO headquartered

My daughter is employed in Singapore by an NGO headquartered in Calif. After 5 years, her ex-pat status expired and she remained with the project as an exempt, high level, employee. For several months the pay has been being readjusted downward and keeps changing. I just visited her and she asked for my assistance in what Calif law might say about these circumstances. They have even withheld pay. She loves the work, but not the salary drama. Where might I go from here to understand what the law says?thank you! Elaine ******

I have recently had a shift in reporting structure due to a

I have recently had a shift in reporting structure due to a merger. My new manager is making me "retrain" on an electronic learning management system that i have been working in since January when she was supposed to provide the instructions for making administrative changes. I am at the top of the payscale and a Senior in the role. I feel as though I am being singled out as No ONE else is being asked to do this. She is not offering to provide the instructions for this process.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Due to the merger, many upper management have been offered "packages" and have left the company. I feel as though they are targeting top level pay to sort of push them out to replace with younger new folks. I am 60 years old and have been with the company for close to 9 years

I'm 28 weeks pregnant and recently brought a Dr excuse to

I'm 28 weeks pregnant and recently brought a Dr excuse to put me on light duty because I was working in the backroom and still climbing latters while pregnant. I was making at least 30 hours a week. The first week I was put on light duty I went down to less than 20 hours a week. The next week they apparently forgot to put me on the schedule all together. When I told my boss about it she added me to the schedule and I got about 20 hours. They put me on the schedule the next week, but only 10 hours, and before that week even started they took me off the schedule completely. I feel like they are discriminating against me because I'm pregnant and can't perform the job duties I'm used to doing which includes heavy lifting and climbing latter's. Are they allowed to cut my hours or take me off the schedule just because I'm pregnant and can't do what I used to do?

I live in IL. My boss wants to fire me over the fact when people speak negatively about him. I never respond and just stay quiet or change the subject. He has statements from people saying I was quiet during certain negative conversations. Each conversation, I eventually walked out of except one I was trying to finish my lunch. He is saying I am angry for a promotion I didn't get. I thought staying quiet during a negativeconversation was taking the high road?? I've even told him about someone of there conversations.I also believe he has been trying to set me up to say negative things about him. I feel very strongly at least one of my co-workers have put me in this situation.
