I live in NY but worked in NJ.
I was hired on 02/09/2007. On 02/13/2007 my employer asked and I confirmed I was pregnant. The next few days things went downhill fast. I was made to lift heavy items, they made me work through my lunch break and they had me going up and down 2 flights of steep stairs numerous times per day while carrying things. Other employees started treating me differently too. They started giving me orders to do their work. When I spoke to my supervisor he told me the other employees mattered more. On 02/21/2007 I found out my employer was interviewing for my position and I was sent home early ( I guess because the person was coming in for an interview). On 02/22/2007 I was fired for not being friendly enough and because they didn't like the way I answered the phone. Now I know NJ is right to hire/fire state but I am looking for opinions. Does it sound like I was fired for being pregnant?? Oh when I asked for a termination letter I was told they have to check with their attorney first.
