How this can effect my employment with the popular tech company??
- By law and in practice is not different in this issue and in this country. Screwing a pregnant woman is dangerous territory and carries great risk for company's PR and possible lawsuit. No manager will take such risk and hr will not let them do that.
Worse they can do is give you less raise/bonus and shitty work when you come back. Your career trajectory may hurt a little bit for short term, but if you are good it can be recovered when you come back.
- I belong to this country and I have been in situations where companies provided other reasons for screwing me up over for something that was against the law. Just like you mentioned, I am referring to a gamut of things including no hiring/less raise/no bonus/shitty work, which in my opinion, does count as discrimination

- Your position isn't protected by FMLA laws. Otherwise, it shouldn't matter, most teams and companies will welcome you and help you plan your leave when appropriate.
- New qryscCongratulations! Don't worry about your job. It is protected by law that they can't fire you because of you are pregnant. The manager always can screw you, but most people are good and they understand.
- Facebook WhateverrsYou'll be fine, top us tech firms are working hard to be viewed as family-friendly.
Wait until at least three months before telling anyone who isn't close to you. One in four pregnancies end in miscarriage in the first trimester, and if you're unlucky it's not fun to have to talk about.
