Denied spot in daycare because of my job
I am an essential healthcare worker for Alameda county. I am currently on parental leave, I will be resuming work in November. I had applied for a spot in a lovely daycare in Feb and from the ongoing communication it appeared that they would have a spot in November and we would receive paperwork to finalize our spot. Then last month some of the existing families in the daycare were concerned about the additional risk I would bring and were not keen that our family join the daycare. I explained to the owner in brief the risk and all the precautions we would be taking. But a few days later we get notified via email that, they would prefer everyone to have equal risk and so they cannot offer our family the spot. I am beyond disappointed that this is happening . While I understand that the owner is doing their best to keep their business afloat but is this legal? Can they discriminate like this?
