I believe this is the first time I ever heard anyone say she hid the pregnancy. Not saying you're wrong, but do you have links?

Regardless, IMO, a person is not obligated to tell their employer they're pregnant at any particular time, especially if early in the pregnancy. (Her pregnancy was quite obvious too, so I assume you mean this was before she was showing). In fact, most people frown upon telling anyone early on. The employer is still required, legally in most places, to make appropriate accommodations and not punish the person for it.

I don't know about America, but where I live a person is legally obligated to tell their employer they are pregnant in the first 12-16 weeks of pregnancy. But of course here, once the employer knows of the pregnancy they can't fire her anymore.

In the U.S., pregnant women are NOT obligated to tell their current employer or future employer (if they're job hunting) that they are pregnant, and employers and potential employers are forbidden to ask if a woman is pregnant or planning to become pregnant.

The reason for this is because pregnant women have almost no protection in the workplace. Even though it's technically illegal to fire a woman because she's pregnant, and employers are required to make "reasonable" accommodations for pregnant women, the fact is employers get around this shit all the time and pregnant women have suddenly found themselves "laid off due to restructuring" OR fired because they suddenly become "bad employees."

Yeeeaaahhhh. This is the first time I've heard "she hid her pregnancy," and this is a story that's been out there for years.

The other thing that makes me doubt this is that Charisma wasn't even showing when they changed Cordelia's storyline. She gave birth right around episode 17/18 in a 22-episode season. And she was back in episode 20. Playing a comatose Cordelia, true, but that was only a couple of weeks after she gave birth.
