  • Requiring pregnant women to work overtime? Florida

    I am 9 months pregnant, and my current boss is requiring me to work over 40 hours, I am getting overtime pay- however... I am 9 months along and beyond exhausted. I do not know how much longer I can keep this up, but I do not want to risk my short-term dis. for maternity leave.

    Any suggestions?

    I wanted to get advise before I took this question to our HR person and again risk making the situation worse for myself before leaving the week after Christmas.

    All others in your position or department being required to work overtime as well? Has your doctor restricted you to 40 hours per week?

    How many employees work at your company/at your job site?

    How would this be jeopardizing your disability? Are you just saying you don't want to go out on disability until you have the baby? I mean, you're nine months pregnant. I don't think there's a doctor in this country who wouldn't certify that you were unable to work at this point.

      Currently we all are due to it being a retail position and the time of year it is.

      About 10 people work at my location 5 in the same position. There are about 100 that work for the same company in the same town but a different stores.

      I currently have not been restricted as far as work goes and I never thought to ask my DR about that. Which gives me a good question for my next appointment!

        Actually, it would be a violation of law for you TO get special treatment just because you are pregnant.
