washington state. my girlfrinds insurance is ppo through her employer. she is pregnant and her doctor has ordered her to only work half days. it is not covered in her employee handbook but she has been told verbally that insurance is only offered to employees who work over 30hrs a week. she will not be working that many hours and has been told she will lose her coverage unless she opts to pay it herself under the cobra law. another girl worked there while pregnant and was allowed coverage even though she never worked over 30hrs a week for the entire time she was employed there (the boss's girlfriend). another person who is not an employee but a friend of the boss is covered under their health plan. does she have any recourse? is there a law that governs this type of conduct since it's not techinically discrimination?
