If I am pregnant, can I be fired if I had a weak or poor employment review?

If an employee is pregnant, the employee still can be fired. The law prohibits the employer from treating the employee worse than any other employee, so if the employee does not do a good job and happens to be pregnant, the employee still can be terminated, and it still would be lawful. Pregnancy does not insulate the employee from the requirements of every other employee to do their job properly. Now, with that said, typically it’s not in an employers best interest to rush into a termination of a pregnant employee because of the potential for claims, and the expenses associated with those claims.
