Q: What can I do if the company refuses to hire me because I might be pregnant?

Hello!I'm in the process of getting a job with a Chinese company in Shanghai and I'm already living in Shanghai. Just last week, I found out I'm pregnant (about 5 weeks along), but I haven't had an ultrasound yet because it's too early.The company has processed my work permit, and only the residence permit step is left. Originally, I planned to wait until the pregnancy was confirmed before telling the company. But because the onboarding process includes a physical check involving X-rays, I had to let them know about the pregnancy. I was supposed to go to the entry-exit bureau yesterday afternoon to finish the residence permit paperwork, but the HR team said it had to be canceled due to an agent's urgent matters. I talked to another HR staff member, and it seems they're now thinking about my application differently. They didn't say it outright, but it sounds like they're waiting for my ultrasound results before making a decision and possibly not continue with my reisdence permit application. What can I do? The work permit is already under this company but I still haven’t canceled my old residence permit.

if you are not Chinese and it is a Chinese company, you are basically scre***d.
any legal challenge to any alleged discrimination would take so long and be so expensive your child would be born before there was any resolution.

to be honest i am surprised that this question is even being asked here given that this forum is dead.

if it were me i would have gone to my embassy first with this kind of query, not some obscure (and dead) forum.

A:Well, doing a medical exam ahead of time wasn't actually necessary. I signed a promissary note stating that I was in good health and would do the result once I arrived in China. This was enough. -- norninman
