Longview, WA asked in Health Care Law and Employment Law for Washington

Q: Can my partner's work penalize him for going to my prenatal appointments?

My partner has been writing down the days of my appointments in which he will either need to leave work early or arrive just a little bit late. His employers told him that it needs to be written down when they are, however they are trying to punish him for attending the appointments.

A: A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. The question may have gone unnoticed under the Health Care Law heading - it's something that an employment law attorney would have insight into. Some questions go unanswered, but you could try reposting under Employment Law. Good luck
