Can your employer reduce your hours a couple weeks before you go on maternity leave?
Question Details: I've been with the company for a year working front desk at a hotel; it's not a job where you do much physical work. Now, 3 weeks before I am supposed to go on maternity leave, my hours have been reduced for no reason. I went from 5 days of work to 2 days of work even though my doctor said that I was fine to work my normal hours until I went into labor. No one else's hours have been effected by the new girl being hired besides mine and I have a week and a half left until I am supposed to start my leave in December. However, now this last week of November I'm not on the schedule at all. Is it legal for them to reduce my hours and give them all to a new girl who hasn't even been there for 2 weeks and just completely take me off the schedule with no notice?
