    I'm confused @bbhope but I put it to how different our industries are

    We also have to work at least 12 months to get parental leave entitlement. If I go on mat leave before 12 months I don't get paid at all. I can still take leave but unpaid.

    @bbhope we are the same - need to work 12 months before entitled to mat pay. Otherwise we are entitled to 12 months off no pay. I think that's actually better than what the government legislates (which is 12 months off no pay after 12 months of continuous work). employers do not have to pay any mat pay but most companies will in order to be competitive in attracting the best workers. I suppose in your industry if it's hard to find work the employers feel they can do anything. It's not the right thing to do tho.

    Oh @Gelati I'm not into slow exercise like yoga and walking too. Haha. I like boxing, PT, spin, circuit class, etc. hard and fast. I can't swim well so I don't like it.

    I got really fit last year. But then I got pregnant and then the miscarriage threw me out completely. I lost direction and had no motivation. I basically despise my body so much that I didn't love or care about it. To me, my body failed my baby. I bounced back but it was winter so it's hard to get fit anyway haha cos I ate too much.

    Interesting. This is the first I heard about you have to work 12 m to be entitled in the industry world. All my friends can just do it after joining the new company.

    Oh...so want to play racquet ball again. But was told contact sport is no no until 4 months.

    No @bbhope most companies require 12 months before entitlement like mat leave kicks in. I've only known do one company that didn't have that policy. Most banks, chartered firms, FMCG, retail, etc all require 12 months of work.

    One of my friends work for the bank and she is entitled for the mat leave now. Maybe different company has different rule? Anyway, I might just get the wrong impression from few friends.

    @Minib - completely understand that. Before my burst of positivity and getting my body fit, i was a bit like that. Just couldn't do anything and my mind was all over the place. On one hand trying to plan life without a bub and on the other deciding if i wanted to try ivf. Was definitely far from fit and a bit of a grump to be honest. Didn't want to see any of my friends and just wanted to wallow in my sorrows. i def was not optimistic when it came to this fertility journey. I kept telling myself it was just not going to happen and i should plan a life with dh without kids.

    Oh really @bbhope? that's very standard in our industry. Actually i've found no company that doesn't have that minimum requirement. But honestly, in order to satisfy it all you need to do is work 4 months and then get pregnant because by the time you take mat leave it'll be 12 months. Tho most employers would frown upon that.

    Oh i think i know what you are talking about, it's because your work pays paid mat leave for a long time right? How long paid leave do you get...like 6 months right? so you are saying rather than going back to work at 4 months and lost 2 months mat leave pay, you want to go back 3 days working so you get paid and 2 days mat leave pay so technically you are getting paid full time? Am i getting that right? If that's the case, then yeh i've never heard of any employer allowing something like that. You are either on parental leave or or back permanently. But maybe your work would allow that? I know ours wouldn't and certainly our payroll systems wouldn't be able to handle that sort of request.

    As for contractor, no one has permanent job in our profession. Pretty much everywhere in the world. One permanent job every 5yrs for 1k specialist to grab? So if no entitlement, no one is going to work for them anymore.
