Its unfortunate but the company has to protect itself. At some point you gonna have to take off. and the company will be put in a bind. To get pregnant now you really put yourself behind the eight nall.

You should look into Social Services. If you can, take college courses online; that will cover your employment gap. Then continue to post your resume online. By obtaining a degree of any sort you move up to a more prosperous lifestyle due to the increase earnings. You could also use gofundme.com to cover living expenses and baby care. I am sure that you will get others to provide more useful ideas. It truly is up to you.

Frankly, if they told you that you didn't get the job b/c you were pregnant, you have a lawsuit against them. It is against the law to deny someone employment because they are pregnant.

Hi Jessica pregnancy is a factor in the job you wanted and the company thought that it would be a problem you working no one wants lawsuits but I'm quite sure they'll hire you again the job is being curious that's all or seek a different employment that'll accept your status.

Hi Jessica, I imagine what happened to you left you disappointed, angry and frustrated but did you consider your pregnancy, might have been a blessing in disguise?. Keep the comment of “blessing in disguise” in the back of your mind for a moment. I saw on your work experience, you are a chemical production worker. I’m presuming you are applying for a similar position where you were denied employment. You're 20 weeks into your pregnancy, and the baby is still developing. I do not know all the circumstances or conversations of what this job offer entails. Yes, the company had declined their offer but perhaps they have a heart for your sake and the baby’s. Perhaps they were concerned the potential harm that could come to you and the baby due to exposure of certain chemicals (either through touch or vapor inhaling). I’ve seen enough warning signs posted in companies that declare the presence of known chemicals that can cause serious illnesses, birth defects and death. There is also, the aspect of performing lifting and being on a elevated position that would be dangerous by one false step, that would alarm me and cause me to switch in someone else if I saw an expected mother performing that.

I suppose the best reason as to why your job offer was declined I think & hope was for your personal and the baby’s well-being.

Another potential reason was a management decision: they needed to make a decision what to do when you are away on maternity leave in about 4 months. It does leave the company in hanging (not your fault, but nonetheless your absence will affect production). Do they need to hire someone and train them and for how long to keep them? Over time, you may not want to give up time with your new bundle of joy. Especially, if there is no caregiver or babysitter plan in place while you work. which would add delay in your return. If there is plan then disclose your plan to the prospective employer. It shows them your maturity and you have given the company some thought. If you are struggling with which direction to take, solicit them for a suggestion. If they are firm in their non-hire decision, then another method can be applied by staying in touch. Keep names and phones numbers handy. Employees come and go. You may hit a job opening at the right time so its good to stay connected from time to time.

Remember when I asked you to hold a “blessing in disguise”? Think of this for a moment, in life we are all presented doors of opportunity. Sometimes we go through it and sometimes we can’t because it closed. But reflect on the positives, learn and move on - that builds valuable wisdom. Don’t get caught up and internalize “they did this to me”. That's wasting energy. The world is not perfect. Keep moving forward. You have a new life coming and you’re going to pour out all your love, energy and protection upon this beautiful child. Stay healthy and keep moving forward Your next blessing might be just around the corner. Have a plan and work through it step by step, modify it as you go along. Patience will be needed but keep moving forward and learn.

Wishing you and your baby the very best. Praying for you.

Having access to a good Labor Attorney, who KNOWS ALL the intricacies of your particular state's Labor Laws, having them research your sitiation, and determine if perhaps, you may have been DISCRIMINATED against, DUE TO YOUR PREGNANCY, might make for an interesting court case, or a very tidy SETTLEMENT, to keep it OUT of court, and give you, and your baby more quality time together, as you may then have the luxury of not NEEDING to work, depending on how good your attorney is, and how large a settlement he/she is able to get for you, minus attorneys fees of course.
