As per the maternity benefit act, no woman employee can be terminated during pregnancy.
You are to that extent protected by the act
However, fighting to retain a job against an employer that does not want you, is a very difficult thing to handle. Even if you were to show the rules or take the help of the labour officer to get your job back, the harassment and mental stress you will go through is huge. Are you willing to take that during a pregnancy ?
