Yep. Because of weight restrictions. They can move me. But nothing is permanent. So I lose my benefits.

No that's gotta be totally illegal. Even if they have to move you because of your weight restrictions, the move cannot affect your benefits. That would be them terminating your benefits because you're pregnant. Hug I wish I was a lawyer that could kick some butt for you Hug

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Seriously Hobbit,
Look up an employment lawyer in your area for a free consultation.
And call the state labor board.

Yeah, no hobbit.

Time to call a lawyer. If you can't do your position due to pregnancy, which is a temporary thing, they should move you to a different position and you keep your current pay and benefits.

Talk to HR and then call a lawyer if needed.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Yes - tell HR, "You cannot change my pay or benefits - my lawyer told me so,"

If she's in the US doing shift work at less than 30 hours/week, I'm not at all sure she has any legal recourse. Pretty sure in Canada this wouldn't even be an issue though. On the upside Obamacare would take her of her pregnancy for like fucking free. Not the job, but at least the pregnancy.

RE: Ranting corner
I have to watch Dante's Peak and list 10 things from the movie that are scientifically accurate and 10 that aren't, and why.

First, I have no love for natural disaster movies...probably second...cause first is that I cannot stand Pierce Brosnan. UGH!

Actually, I don't HAVE to do it, it's extra credit...but I would like to have the buffer of extra points, but it will be so painful. Weeping

Hopefully it helps the hurt on your brain a little.

ProTip:

COMPUTER EQUIPMENT DOESN'T WORK IF YOU UNPLUG IT!


Fucking seriously, it's 2014. I shouldn't have to explain to people that if you unplug the little box that connects electronic equipment to the power, it won't work. This is not even the first time I've had to do so in the last 3 months.

WTF is wrong with people?
