I have been working with a large company since december 2011, the co-ord went on stress leave on the 29th Jan 2012. I took over the position to help out while she was away, with the knowledge that if she was to return she would take the roll back. If not the position would be advertised and i would need to apply for it.
Today she handed in her resignation and hasnt been back to work since Jan. I am so worried that i wont get the position as i am now 19 weeks pregnant and will need to go on maternity leave. I plan on only taking 3 months off as thats all we can afford and gives me some time with bub.
Would you hire someone knowing that the person would be having 3 months off for maternity leave?
I love my job so much, all the clients and staff its the most amazing and rewarding job i have ever had.
