hi all need to pick your brains. i started my 2 day a week job the last week of april this year and as of today i am 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant. i believe that i need to tell my employers by the 15th week stating when iam goping on maternity leave. it says nothing in my contract about maternity leave and it says they can guve me 1 weeks notice to leave. what if i give them the letter and then they get rid of me? also can i use up my holiday so i can go on maternity leave earlier. ta
when i started the job no but because of the ages (3 in feb and 4) i cant see it being a major issue. they new my age and that i got marroed last year. the eldest starts scool this sept and the little one will start school sept 2010. the mum works from home for her brothers company.
why did you sign a contract stating a weeks notice?
tech they cant sack you and replace you while you are pregnant, but they can say that they dont want you coming back with your child - but they do have to legally offer your job back to you, before getting another nanny, as it is now (ie leaving your baby to be with someone for those 2 days)
did you discuss at interview what would happen in years time,when youngest starts school?
