Hi, I have discovered I am pregnant this weekend but am very nervous as I am starting a new job tomorrow. (Ironically the job I have just left was with a well know Nusery Retailer - I'm trying to not think of the lost discount!) I have been recruited as the person previously in the role is leaving to have a baby and has already said she isn't returning. I'm only 4 weeks so I don't really want to say anything yet just in case but on the other hand I don't want to appear that I have lied to my new employers. I will be returning to work after the birth as we aren't able to cope financially without 2 incomes. I would really appreciate any advice on how and when to go about speaking to my new boss from any one who has been in the same situation. Thanks!
Thanks Grevling - I've had a look at dates and it will be MA but I don't know anything about enhanced maternity pay, is this something I should know? Also, my probationary period is 6 months and I guess I know the legal answer but I'm worried that they will find a way to end my contract. Too much to think about in 1 week!
