Is it lawful to offer a job to a woman and then pull the offer when the company learns that she is pregnant? No as this is pretty clear pregnancy discrimination.
A female job applicant who was hired and had her job offer rescinded after the company learned she was pregnant has settled her pregnancy discrimination case for $140,000. The applicant was told she was hired for a position as an executive assistant for Olam America, a huge agribusiness company in California. However, after the company learned she was pregnant, it rescinded her hiring and then gave the job to a non-pregnant applicant.
