Not eligible for FMLA, being forced to pay company paid insurance premiumS

I am 8 months pregnant and have recently been informed since I will be taking unpaid maternity leave and will be taking off one full month that I would be responsible for paying the $400 insurance premium that is always paid by my employer for a full time employee.

They have given me the option to work from home requiring 32 hours of work in exchange for them paying my premium, since I do not qualify for FMLA (will only be there for 9 months before delivery), do I have any rights against this?

Pregnancy leave

Maternity leave under the circumstances you describe is probably being handled legally - unless individuals given other types of leave opportunities are not required to pay their premiums by this employer.
