Fired for pregnancy?

EmployerFilter. My soon-to-be wife is around four months pregnant. Our due date is the first week of July, which at that time will be employed with her current employer for eleven months time. She currently is covered under their group insurance.
Today they informed her that they will give her seven (unpaid) days of maternity leave. They informed her they will be terminating her if she takes anything longer off. To me this sounds rotten, possibly illegal.
We are the state of Florida, USA. Can they really fire her for taking more than a week of maternity leave?
