My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Colorado
I started a new job about 2 months ago and before I started with this company I made it known that I was pregnant. At the time nobody seemed to have an issue with it but as I progressed in my job and demonstrated my experience level and competency with the product that we are making I was appoached a number of times by various supervisors and the production manager himself about moving up in structure (team lead, supervisor) but I regretfully declined as taking one of these positions would take precious time away from spending it with my husband and 2 year old daughter. Even more so than my present position already did. Then I started noticing that I was being made to work with chemicals, which I objected to initially, but finally conceded after saw that my point of view was not being acknowledged. A few days went by and I was approached by a co-worker and he voiced his concern about me working with these chemicals and the possible affect that it could have with my unborn child. After researching this I presented the information that I found to my supervisor and he then informed the production manager and he inturn took this information to human resources and today I was informed that if I did not get a doctors release stating which chemicals I can safely work with my employment with be terminated. Today is Friday and I have to have this information by Monday and my doctor cannot see me until Friday. So my question is what rights do I have and if I am terminated do I have a legitamet right to sue this company?
