PLEASE HELP!! my new manager is hell bent on saving costs at the expense of her staff. My replacement started three when I was 6 months pregnanct (as she was returning to the business anyway) my manager has forced me to handover all my work and direct reports to my replacement, even though I made it clear I am still there for another 3months and didn't want to.
Me and the replacement are awkward because the manager is pushing me out, she said she was doing it in my interest so I could take it easy. There's isn't enough work for both of us, plus I do a long drive to work to do nothing!!
I asked my manager if I could work from home as now 36. Wks, and she refused even tho non pregnant workers do this often. I feel she's trying to push me out onto mat leave to avoid paying two people, but I can't afford to go early And the awkwardness is making my life hell. To top it off, an aggressive male direct report was disciplined for being agressive and rude towards me and since his formal warning he's ignoring me despite me managing him for thr last yr!! All this is adding to stress and feel like I hate it there. Any advice?
What I want to know is that at 36 wks, if I get signed off for two wks for stress or anxiety, would this automatically start me on mat leave or is this only for pregnAncy related issues.
Please help!! X
