shellsocks Fri 18-Oct-13 16:40:26

Thanks for the new thread saggy smile

Oooo can I be first please pink I feel terrible today, sick and BH non stop just want to go into labour now!

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 16:55:09

ooh thanks for the new thread saggy smile

shell that sounds exciting!! in fact i met a friend for lunch yesterday, she has 2 babies and said that for both, she had reflexology and the next day they were born!!! sooooo i know what i'll be booking in for when i'm ready smile

on a more 'i'msofuckedoffrightnownote i just cried the whole way home from work. you know how when you give in your matB1 form, your employer is supposed to write to you with details of when you are due back after leave / pay etc etc ....well i still haven't had this eventhough i have asked on numerous occasions. i don't even know how i'm going to be paid my maternity pay (we are normally paid by weekly cheque, but if you aren't there on a friday then you don't get your cheque without begging for it on your return). if i'm honest, i'm more worried about not getting may mat pay than i am about giving birth. my boss is a complete fucktard and this is seriously stressing me out this afternoon. i can feel my blood boiling and i really need to calm down but can't angry angry
sorry rant over x

IBelieveInPink Fri 18-Oct-13 17:16:22

Janie I have had enough of your skanky boss and company now. You have given them notice, and they are being out of order. You are in Ireland aren't you? Or have I made that up? I would send them a strongly worded email about gaining legal advice (even if you don't intend on doing this!) because their crappyness is not okay!
I am good on the uk law with this one, but not so much with Ireland. I can look into it if you need help though, is making me v angry!!

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 17:25:22

thank you pink x i am in northern ireland so still uk. i've told them it's a legal document that i was meant to receive 28 days after giving the mat b form (gave them this on 6th august). one guy started hand writing a letter in pencil and when i stated that the boss said he'd give me more than the stat pay he stopped and said he'd have to check with the manager. i printed off an email that i sent to the manager with what was agreed verbally and his reply saying 'yes as agreed' and still nothing. aarrgghhh. i was told i would have it by the close of business today so i waited on until then, when i went in and asked for it i was told there's no chance of me getting it today as the manager wasn't coming back in. totally fucked off and now i've told dh and he's fuming too. happy friday my hole! sobface sad

IBelieveInPink Fri 18-Oct-13 17:36:02

Oh sweet. That's just shit.
Okay, over the weekend write them a letter, setting out what you believe has been agreed and that you need a response from them within 48 hours. Say that you are massively concerned that they have already missed their legal deadline as an employer, as if for any reason they are not going to pay, you would have a delay in getting maternity allowance (I don't for a second think they won't pay you but you need to justify the threat)throw in undue stress on baby too.
Then say if you don't have a reply withing the 48 hour deadline, you will be taking legal advice for them not following their statutory obligations as an employer.
Of course, this is no more really than what you have already said but putting it in writing adds more weight, and will hopefully (given how dodgy you have already said they are) scare them into putting your letter in writing!!

That's what I would do anyway. Obviously you know the relationship better than me, so if you think it easier to play nice, that may be your quickest route to a resolution, but it sounds like you have already tried this.

Sorry it's so stressful for you sad it's totally unfair and stinky of them!

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 17:46:07

thank you so much pink, i REALLY am so grateful for your advice. i'll definitely draft up an email or letter over the weekend and send it to the fucktard manager first thing monday morning. i promise not to bombard the thread anymore with my stinker of an employer. thank you again, you're fab xx

i think this calls for pizza, ryan gosling and maybe even a sneaky glass of red wine tonight x

shellsocks Fri 18-Oct-13 17:46:18

This has been going on for ages hasn't it janie, so stressful when you are already having a stressful time just being pregnant hmm I can't offer any advice and pink is your woman anyway so I'll just send you my best wishes that you can get this sorted now asap x

It's not exciting really janie been feeling sick and getting the BH for ages now so not hopeful of going early really hmm My DM has DS tonight so me and DH can have one last night out/lie in before baby comes and I feel sick so don't fancy the Mexican we have booked and will prob wake up at 6am with it too ha ha typical....still looking forward to it tho smile

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 17:55:19

yup shell, sadly he's turned into the meanest man on earth in the last few years. i can't wait to get finished up. i think i'll start looking for something else towards the end of my maternity leave. now dh has just said that he thinks he won't pay me at all and is now saying we'll lose our house. nice! might just go to bed and bury my head in the sand and try to forget about it until monday morning.

on a totally posifrickintive note, whatever happens, i'm going to have a lovely little baby in about 5 weeks who i will love more than life itself and that's all that really matters <3

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 17:56:08

ps hope you enjoy your mexican feast shell - maybe you could change it to an indian restaurant...ya know hot curries and all that ;) xx

IBelieveInPink Fri 18-Oct-13 17:58:44

No problem Hun. If you need anything else, feel free to PM me. More than happy to help.

Shell - so jealous of your Mexican. Yum yum! And loving the start on spicy food - spice that baby out!!!

TeaAndANatter Fri 18-Oct-13 18:17:01

Janie what a total cockgoblin. I'm so sorry that you have this to worry about. I will send evil bad vibes in boss's general direction all weekend whenever I think about him. By Monday he may be green with warts all over. I hope.

Pixielady83 Fri 18-Oct-13 18:30:12

Hi ladies just checking in to new thread.

janie I can't believe your work, they sound like complete Muppets. I really hope they sort you out soon. I may join you in a sneaky glass of red this eve. Work has been mega stressful this week and now MIL has turned up for weekend. Sneaking to the pub with a friend later grin leaving DH with instructions that if she talks about pitching up on week 1 of new baby that he is to say the midwife has advised no visitors in first wk due to the anxiety I suffered last time totally made up but if i was my mw that's what I would advise

ibip yay for baby turning!

cbeebies hope you've got checked out at GP I really think it sounds like you need to be, as GD is far more manageable if you catch it early and you don't want to feel crap when you don't have to. Your mw is a moo isn't she.

So I told DD about baby last night. Said 'you know how mummy's tummy is big...' And she said 'is there a baby in there' and looked quite pleased smile we chatted a bit about babies for a while then she said 'oh look a monkey' and hasn't mentioned it since grin

Happy weekend everyone xxx

IBelieveInPink Fri 18-Oct-13 18:54:24

Tea - cockgoblin. New favourite word. snort

MissMedusa Fri 18-Oct-13 19:11:29

JanieLovesLuckySocks Fri 18-Oct-13 19:15:39
