Why can't you? I had to get my Dr to do it coz my boss was being a d!ck even though I ended up admitted to hospital he still wanted me to work
I've written her a letter asking if we can compromise and if she can let me change my work days, she's not in the office all day so she will only see it tomorrow or late tonight and I am not holding my breath for her to come to the party!
This sucks as we have specifically waited until now as DH dad who is in his mid 70's is needing open heart surgery, he's having a biopsy on Monday 4th to see if his liver will be able to handle the surgery and we hadn't booked a holiday till now (well not booked yet) as we want to be here when he goes in for the surgery. I have explained that in my letter so hopefully she shows a bit of compassion as to why I've left it so late but knowing her she won't care.
So annoying. Anyway, not much I can do about it now
Given the circumstances I hope she's willing to compromise!
Wow! So my boss rang today and said I could swap my work days, so all good, BUT she's basically told me I have to resign...
She said she wants my resignation letter o finish up on the 24th dec. I was always going to finish up that day but she's never actually spoken to me about my maternity leave at all, so I kinda assumed that she would give me leave etc (not paid) and keep my job open for me.
Clearly not. To be honest I wouldn't have gone back as I've had a lot of issues with her, and although what she's done / said etc in the past was not illegal (but bordering on it - advice from legal aid) it has been completely unethical, but still the OPTION of going back would have been nice...
Is that even legal? I would check your options - but then again is it really worth it if you're not planning on returning?
That sucks doesn't sound like a great boss :/
I have no idea if its legal or not, probably is due to the fact I haven't worked there for a full 12 months yet? Plus small businesses have different rules and regulations
She can't ask you to resign, she has to let you go. Resignation is your decision- not hers. And she can't fire you for being pregnant, that is illegal.
Pregnant for the first-time?
