Dear Cubicle Coach:
I just got a great job offer, but I'm two-and-a-half months pregnant. Is it ethical not to tell them?
At two-and-a-half months, you're probably not even telling close friends and family. CC doesn't think it's wise to reveal the pregnancy too early-do you tell prospective suitors on the first date that legumes make you gassy? Once things get serious or an offer is made, you're still under no legal obligation to spill, but it's time to consider it. While an employer can't rescind the offer because you're pregnant, if the job entails heavy travel every week or, say, baling hay, you may not be able to perform the duties, which means they do have an out. Not a bad idea to come clean. Nobody wants to feel like someone tried to pull a fast one on them. But don't be shocked if the new boss offers congrats through clenched teeth.
