Hi, I have been worked with a company with 3.5 yrs, now, a few days ago, my boss mailed me that i m not doing good at work and mailed me that my performance is not good.. Based on that HR called me and said that we are terminating you that your performance is not going good, then i told my HR that I'm pregnant (4th month) i can't leave the job. But they pressurised me to resign immediately and i have resigned that day only asking for one month notice period. Can i sue my employer for pressuring me to resign and can i avail maternity benefits now.. I am on notice period.
