Did you keep the abusive texts? Try this charity for some advice - I don't know what the content of the texts were but it sounds like your manager's attitude may amount to discrimination. http://www.maternityaction.org.uk/
my manager is going to refuse it saying it doesnt work for the buisiness?... am i best off going on the sick untill i find another job?.. no i have already been told i wont have to pay and maternity pay back will i really not be entitled to benifits even when i have a child i didnt think they could do that? xx
You need to apply for flexible working. HR should have the forms. Do this before you go back. Did you get any extra maternity pay? If you don't go back you might have to repay it. If you leave you might not be entitled to any benefits for a while.
