In April 2012 I came back from maternity leave to a flexible work agreement (a part-time continuos of my current full-time role) they also kept on the person covering my maternity leave (she was still full-time and I was part-time.) the difference i had to change my title (that of a lower) and I had less tasks / more menial work whether she continued my normal full-time duties. I was excluded from meetings, my performance review (therefore had no time to discuss my lack of work to do situation) and social events(i remember one particular day everyone going out for lunch but when i asked where people were going they would subsequently ignore me, i was left in an empty office. when the office returned i was told i was not included as I was part-time / flexible work agreement which upset me greatly) During the time I was indirectly discriminated out of my original permanent full-time job and made to feel it was no longer available to me as she recently the person covering maternity leave had a contract extended & and she went on annual leave recently however management had someone in an outside role cover her while she was away & I continued other duties and asking people if I could have work to do to fill my hours. I was offered a different job but it was not related to my original position in no way (original job was department coordination - where originally i was promised by management it was flexible family work / life balance before I went on maternity leave). This role offered no flexibility, undetermined hours - working in technical support under a critical high pressure broadcast environment. the perception I received was that the underlying motivation of management was to offer a position I would not be able to take on long-term or at all at the moment in the hope I would decline and leave. I asked for flexibility or to continue my flexible work agreement for a few more months while I sought more help with parenting / caring responsibilities (had a baby in and out of tressillian) as 3 days was my limit while needing help but it was declined. Finally I ended up in a meeting where I had to take the role on as it were or leave as what I was doing now was a waste of resources. (and there were no other opportunities given to me.) In haste and feeling completely dejected, I congratulated management on retaining the person covering my leave and said she must have some amazing talents and I was obviously not suitable for my own role back. after the hours I put into the company in the previous years it felt like the worst feeling in the world. Feeling there were no other options I played the game where I gave intent for a week to sign the new contract so at least I'd have an income coming in to support DD while I secured a new job (I did secure employment of a lower paying role with less duties) and when I was given an offer outside the company .I resigned from my job and said even though I don't want to leave and I have to I'm going to another job. Instead of giving 4 weeks notice management had me finish up in 4 days.This afternoon I found out from a source at the moment they were waiting until I resigned so they could offer the girl a full-time position (they couldn't while I was there, however continued to extended her temporary contract) they didn't offer me redundancy as my job was never absorbed or no longer available - there was just another person there doing my job that they preferred because she didn't have the situation where she just had a baby.Yes it might seem perhaps this girl's performance is better than mine, however in my exit meeting with HR, though I felt I could not tell them the entire story of what happened - i did stress I didn't want to leave the company. they have told me that because I have given a few good years of service & there were no problems with my performance, I could apply to management to rescind my resignation and come back on part-time for a month before starting this new role within the company. The question I asked to management if I were to rescind my notice is that COULD we talk about any type of flexible or support for me taking on this new role however I was directly told because I was looking for flexibility there role is now longer available to me anyway - the time has now passed and wished me all the best on my future endeavours. As per HRs request I did send a letter via email rescinding my resignation in the hope HR could help my case however at the digression of management I never got a reply or confirmation and my last day came and went so I'm assuming I don't work there anymore.I want to take this further - is there anything I can do? I feel like having a baby and a flexible work agreement wrecked my career at the company and surely this isn't right?
