Pregnancy Discrimination at Work

  • Make sure to keep notes of all the important events that are happening to you. I like the practice of emailing myself notes I don’t want to forget, because then there’s a time stamp and no one can accuse you of writing them after-the-fact. You can email yourself: “Today my boss took my most lucrative client from me and gave it to a guy who was hired two weeks ago. I feel very frustrated.”
  • Make sure all of your communications with HR or your managers are in writing. During meetings, take notes, and immediately email the attendees after the meeting, “This is my reflection of what was discussed during the meeting … [you said this… I said that…] let me know if you have a different understanding.”
  • Keep in mind that your work emails are owned by the company. If you get fired, they will block access to your emails. Always forward important emails to your personal email or make copies of the emails to keep in a file.
  • Make sure you keep doing your job. Don’t give them a reason to fire you. It will look really bad on them if they fire you and they can’t find anything wrong with your performance or competence.
