So here I am 6 months pregnant still waiting for my medical leave cheque… No income whatsoever because I wasn’t good enough

Working at a pub, for an owner with high standards. Once I became pregnant it was very difficult meeting those ‘standards’ . My morning sickness was the worst, constantly throwing up throughout the day, fighting migraines and fatigue. I didn’t want to just give in, I still went to work on time and tried my very best to show them I was committed to my job there as a server. By the time I hit 4 months It started taking it’s toll on me, Being on my feet 8 hours at a time, some days until 1am, they still expected so much from me, & my manager would complain saying I’m always not feeling good, and that she’s getting complaints that I am not doing my best and it’s making her look bad, all she cared about was how she looked and how her company looked, which I understand.. But Being the state I was in I just didn’t understand why she was so hard on me for it. They still expected me to be 100% no matter how ill I actually was. I still kept a smile on my face and tried to hide being sick the best I could. After a while I felt fine and was okay for most of my shifts, I was starting to feel like me again but, one morning I woke up to get ready for work & I couldn’t stand up without feeling faint, and puking my guts up. It was a rough morning. So I decided to call in sick , And I might add I never call in sick. Yet so many other girls call in sick religiously and still get respect than ever from my manager. Anyway, I called in sick and she told me that I need to go on medical leave, and that she was going to cover the rest of my hours, I was telling her I’m trying me best here and I know I’m not as strong as I used to be, and the fake bitch that she is, tried acting sympathetic but I knew she actually didn’t care and just wanted me out of there, still implying she needs me and sending me on my way.. so here I am 6 months pregnant still waiting for my medical leave cheque… No income whatsoever because I wasn’t good enough. My family thinks i should go to the labour board and report her, but knowing how she is, I probably wouldn’t win the case. She always has leeways.
