I'm so sorry you've gone through it too. It should definitely be illegal to do this on mat leave. The stress I've had throughout the last 9mths has really tainted what was meant to be a year focusing just on my DD. Instead my anxiety has gone through the roof, I feel pushed out and kicked out and totally dumped like nobody cares. It was also my identity for the last 4 years so now i have no idea who I am. I couldn't sleep last night and woke up in tears. I can't believe 4 years hard work has culminated into a cheque and a kick in the teeth. 😞
I also agree with you. It's not worth fighting. Sectors are small and people talk. It does mean your left with all this anger tho and nobody to direct it at..
Did it take you long to find your job? Could you not find P/T?
