I have never had a pregnancy test included as part of a pre-employment physical. To deny you employment solely because of pregnancy would be a violation of federal law.
You should check with your OB/CNM regarding any restrictions on working conditions because of pregnancy. If you are healthy and have no complications, I doubt that there will be any lifting restrictions, but there will probably be a few other safety concerns, such as avoiding x-ray exposure, handling chemo, etc. Depending on your unit, these may not even be applicable.
It is your choice as to when you disclose your pregnancy to your employer. Just be aware that you will not qualify for Family and Medical Leave at the time the baby is born, due to your short time of employment.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy pregnancy!
A pregnancy test should not be a part of an employee physical. If you are not able to forsee any immediate complications with this pregnancy I would not sweat it.
Barring complications your restrictions should be minimal, depending on what sort of area you are going to work in. Use good universal precautions and proper body mechanics and all should be well for you.
Since you seem so excited about your pregnancy my guess is you are going to have a hard time keeping it a secret for long.
Good luck to you.
Not sure either, but I don't see why they would NOT hire you. You just might not qualify for pay maternal benefits (my guess only) and granted a certain time for maternal leave.
I still think that being honest upfront is the best route to go. Either way, I am so happy for you that you are having a baby and YOU decide what is best for you.
Not sure, but are you planning on not telling your employer that you are pregnant?
i just excepted a job at a large hospital in our area. i am a recent graduate (lvn) and have been talking with this hospital since july. i am supposed to start training next week. i found out sunday that i am pregnant with our second child. i am excited because we have been trying for sometime now. we quite trying and BAM...pregnant. anyways, i have to have a complete physical for the hospital. do they usually do pregnancy tests? if so, can they not hire me because of it? i thought it would be descrimination, but then i got to thinking...what if they said that i cant meet job requirements of lifting????? any advice would be greatly appreciated......
