    Maybe I will give it a try! I guess now nobody notices that I'm pregnant but they probably will notice it within my probation time. So it maybe better to appy for a job and tell the truth. :)

    when i went to talk to companies, i told them about my situation when i was given an offer. All the companies i have talked to did not have a problem with it. I don't think being pregnant should stop people from getting hired......as long as you perform the job well and are qualified for the position!

    Hi everyone

    I worked with a company for 5 months (still in probation), told my boss about my pregnancy (27weeks at the time), and got laid off the week after. Long story short tell, I'm going through legal now (both labour department and EOC) and very well- responsed from both sides. Apparently my "international" company doesn't have a clue of what's the law here. Pregnant employees are well protected in HK, provided that you have been in the company for more than 12 weeks, you have not done any serious misconduct and have served notice of pregnancy before the dismissal.
