I just employed an employee who is pregnant. During the interview session, she told me she suspected that she is 2 months pregnant. After a week when she reported to work, her tummy tells that her pregnant is at least 4 months.1st question, can i terminate her during her probation period if she is pregnant?2nd question, what if she lied that she is 2 months pregnant when she has more than 4 months pregnant? can the company take this action to terminate her when she is not practicing proper ethical by telling lies?Thanks.

It is not advisable to terminate the service of an employee on grounds of pregnancy. Consult the Labour Department for official opinion. Give them a call.
