Pregnant with baby 2 and worried about layoffs. For families of 4 how many months of cash on hand should I have to be conservative. Worried if laid off finding job pregnant will be tough

6 months


6 months is conservative and way more than most families have. If you get to that, you’re great.


It’s more than I have but a solid goal to shoot for especially since finding an equivalent job could take that long or more. Pretty sure I need a common or period somewhere in there

Really? I was thinking 1-2 yrs living expenses.


Yeah. I’d say 1 year for sure. I’d like to get to 1.5 yrs

If you’re pregnant now and they know, I believe you’re in a protected class, so Firing you would almost be off the table. 


I stand corrected then

I mean would they lay off someone who is pregnant? Isnt that illegal?

I guess it depends where she is. In some countries labour laws protect pregnant women to be laid off in such condition.

If you're pregnant or just had children Deloitte will not let you go. You're a protected class.

1 year!
