Hey all, I'm hoping for some perspective on this situation..
I am a legal secretary in Brisbane. I started work at the firm early may, pay reviews are done end of June so understandably I didn't get one. However my boss had said to me that he'd spoken to the managing partner and the finance manager and it had been approved to review my pay before Christmas.
5 weeks ago I told my boss I'm pregnant and will be going on maternity leave in may. Now my review hasn't been done and I can't help but think this has something to do with it.
I'll be going on mat leave in may so I'll have been there 12 months and I intend to return in January, so by the time I come back I'll have been with the firm 20 months. I can't help but feel that this situation is really unfair as if my pay isn't reviewed now I'll once again miss out next year because I'll be on mat leave.
I'm definitely going to approach it with my boss in the new year, I'm just trying to figure out where I stand in the meantime (no point trying to out lawyer a lawyer without knowing my rights)!
