Hi I started at my job in Septmber 2012 and told my Employer last week I am pregnant, due in August. They decided to have a meeting with me this week: Several issues were raised 1.) They have decided my hours of work are inconvenient to them and want me to work later (I have a son of school age which is why the original hours of work were discussed) 2.) Have reduced my holiday entitlement (have the original in an email in writing) 3.)Want proof of pregnancy now 4.)Want me to fill in a time sheet every half an hour I was under the impression it was a informal meeting about work in general but it seems this was not the case as the two people in the meeting were taking notes! Everything was fine until this week and seems a bit strange that this has all come up now?!!! Can anyone help or advise please???
Oh, and you can't give them proof of pregnancy yet - they will just have to take your word for it until you get your MATB1 between 20-24 weeks - legally you don't have to tell them until then and I don't think they can request it sooner. They might need proof of your ante-natal appts though, in which case you could ask your MW to give you an appt card or write it in the back of your notes.
My probationary period was til December so quite a while ago. No one else has to do time sheets! I have stated that don't get MATB1 until later but they have now requested in an email. I also have not taken anytime off yet for antenatal appointments as took them as holiday. Before I reply to the email I received thought would be best to look into it a bit further! Thanks for th reply!
