I've just found out I'm pregnant, I've been working in a care home for 7 months, my probationary period was supposed to finish last month but I've heard nothing about it yet. I'm really worried about telling my manager as she is giving another pregnant staff member a hard time at the moment. I'm scared she will try to find a way to sack me, even though all the feedback I've gotten since I started has been great, written and verbal. I'm just wondering where I stand as she can be quite intimidating, and I want to know all my rights before I tell her. Thankyou

You have the right not to be treated less favourably because you are pregnant; however it can be hard to prove.

I would hold off from telling them until your probationary period is confirmed

I am not an employment lawyer but have had dealings with them,

Do you feel you need an immediate risk assessment? It is up to you when you tell her provided you have done so by the 25th week of pregnancy.

What does your contract say about your probationary period? Do you need a formal review to pass it?

Thankyou, my review was due last month, I'm going to ask about it tomorrow. I'm the activities co ordinator, Its not a strenuous job so I can definitely wait to tell them. If I pass my probationary period will it make my job a bit safer when I tell them
