Almost 7 months pregnant (contractor) and laid off
Hi, as the title suggests, I am 27 weeks’ pregnant and laid off. I was laid off because reorg in the group and not because I am pregnant. I knew the reorg was happening but was told by my manager that I should be safe till my maternity leave. Also naively, I didn’t think LinkedIn, where they make such a big fuss about ‘we care for our employees’ would lay off a 7 month pregnant contractor. Anyways I am a contractor so the company has all the right to terminate my contract as they see fit. But I just want to know what is the best way to get a short time gig and what other options can I explore?
