lay off while pregnant

I am going to be laid off July 1st, 2005 but I am 4 months pregnant and my due date is July 3rd. This way I am unable to go on maternity leave. I would like to know if the company should pay for my maternity leave. Thank you.

Employers are not required to pay maternity leave but may have a disability plan -- which you should ask about . State administered programs like EDD disability benefits probably apply if your employer doesn't offer you benefits for the leave.

Is there any evidence that the lay off was motivated by your pregnancy?
