Pregnant And Fired



"I have been doing doc review since I graduated law school. I am a few months pregnant and was recently fired from a big project in NYC because I didn't work enough hours and apparently "was in the bathroom too much." Do I have any recourse? Are their any jobs I can do from home? Any information you can provide is appreciated.

{Agency said} I have done good work for them before so when they asked about the lateness and bathroom use I explained I was pregnant, but I did not tell the client. {Agency} was the one that mentioned to me about the possibility of working from home because they like the work I have done for them, but have no opportunities currently available."

Get an abortion.

Spoken like a true law school graduate. Thank god for our hallowed right of choice.

(Not to imply i want to ban legal abortion in the least - i just DO think this story, and the first comment, say a lot about the fucked up state of priorities in our whole country, and it's not the first time I've seen it. At Paul Weiss, icon of NY liberalism and defender of the terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, a few years ago an unmarried and high powered female litigator there adopted a baby, it was suddenly announced on the bulletin one day. This woman will experience the joys of motherhood through the nannies she can afford from the efforts of temps like me and a friend of mine who was on the assignment, pregnant, and fired around the same time.)

Wow. Your advice as an attorney to this woman asking for help is to get an abortion! No Wonder all you can do is be a temp. As an attorney you have lost all your common sense and your ability to counsel others. You need to get a real job because staring at the computer screen has fried your brain!!! To the pregnant women you should contact all the agencies and tell them that you are interested in working from home. It is increasingly becoming more popular. Having a child is the greatest contribution you can make to society and I wish you the best. Good Luck!!!

I am really tired of whining temps at my firm.

I think all black women on these projects should be sterilized. We need to get rid of the welfare mother mentality.

From what I can tell, firms will get rid of temps on their own accord. Seems you assholes will fight one another to the death, and then, thank God, none of us will have to listen to your crying.

You temps are all a bunch of sissy-ass mother fuckers looking to gain way, way more than you deserve.

My firm and the firms where my friends work will not give you and your loser friends a job at all pretty soon. However, every foreign attorney will be happily employed.

Sleep tight over the weekend. You did it to yourselves with your bad attitude and this crazy website.

Outsourcing will = massive defaults on TTT student loans. The ABA would never let that happen. When TTT schools start to close and TTT administrators start losing their puffed up salary positions, watch the bar authorities finally start to crack down on overseas legal practice. There will ALWAYS be an abundance of shitty jobs available for shitty graduates, as the whole system depends on it.

You are an bright shining example! You are naive, and students, like you, will still pour into law schools hoping for the American Dream even though, like you, they are barely mediocre. Sure, the lower level jobs will still exists, but those like you who demand too much money for the useless point and click work you do will have to move to the third world. Sorry about that.

Well sadly the bitches on this site who will not shut-the-fuck-up are going to ruin your world.

Firms are tired of the bitching on this site, and they have the power to shut it down -- just stop hiring the pussy-ass queers who whine all the time.

Honestly, it's that easy.

This site has degenerated beyond belief with disgusting insults and comments. The "alleged" associate at a "big firm" has nothing better to do than read this blog that is becuase in relaity his firm won't let him. BTW, I worked as a paralegal at several big firms before going to law school and the reason "associate" has time to respond to every comment on here is because associates, especially first year associates, are not really given any work to do because the majority of them have no common sense and will mess up the simplest thing. And for all their bragging about the stress and pressure, the real stress comes from hoping and praying that the big partner does not lose it with the associate and rips him a new one so loud it can be heard on the whole floor. I saw and heard this many times as a para. The first year screws up some minor thing and the partner walks into his office and proceeds to yell and use every curse word in the book at the associate (think Gordon Ramsay). The partner I worked for urged me to go to law school and after dealing with the first year bozos for so long I did. Also Tom the Temp really needs to moderate this board and delete the useless, ignorant and offensive comments. I though the purpose of this forum was to provide each other info, support, etc. Lastly, one cannot claim to be superior to others if one is ignorant of proper syntax, usage and spelling.

I work for an agency that has a temp atty division, and all you whiny-ass temps should know we have scouts checking out facilities in India already. Why? Because that's what our law firm clients and corporations have asked us to do. We don't care though, we'll just be getting comissions of the Indian attorneys. Same thing to us, but less complaining and gimme-gimme-gimme requests. We are very excited about not having to deal with these self-entitled TTTs in the US.

Wow, you are really go out of your way to harass the temp workers. With each post, your sad, bitter attitude manifests itself. Have you been completely disillusioned by the law and the firm for which you worked?

It's the weekend now, why don't you take your sweaty little fingers off the keyboard and go out and talk to fellow humans. Try to relax, no career is worth the rage and hatred that you obviously feel for temp workers.

Why do you think the pregnant whiner is black? I imagined some stupid little blond b!tch complaining.

I hate pregnant women in general. They always think the whole world is supposed to stop just because they're pregnant. I mean, why should she be entitled to work less hours than everybody else just because she's pregnant?

Pregnant women disgust me, and just ruin the legal profession for other women. (I'm a woman by the way, and no, I'm not a lesbian. I just have my priorities straight!)

I get so sick of having to pick up the slack from co-workers who go on paid maternity leave and then never come back because they want to "stay home". They just ought to stay home from the get-go where they belong so other women, like me, who actually want to excel in their careers, have a chance.

I wish you'd remove that disgusting picture because pictures of pregnant women disgust me. Big fat repulsive whales!

If I hear about one more bar association seminar celebrating how women have made great strides in this profession, I am going to puke. Some one should really email this entry to Chief Judge Kaye.

All those on this site who purport to be temp staffing agencies or associates at a big firm are really posting from their mom's basement because they can't get a job.

I agree completely with the above post (2 above), pregnant women are repulsive and disgust me, i can't even that gross belly without having the feeling to puke.

They also have more privileges than everyone else and get paid to do absolutely NOTHING all day.
