Thanks for all of the research … I hope it all works out well for you. The ladies in my ER which have quit while pregnant did so voluntarily … nobody has ever been fired because of a pregnancy, but people have been taken off of the schedule during their “light duty” time after surgeries … none of which were job related that I know of. We have had people end up leaving due to job related injuries, but I don’t really know the details on those. As far as I know, my hospital has acted within the law in this regard.
I was just stating that people shouldn’t show up to work for a position in which they can not perform the assigned duties …. but if you were hurt on the job, by all means you should be covered under L&I. Good luck.
