As not to drip feed been in this job since February. Since I've been pregnant I've been off nearly 8 weeks in hospital but back on Monday. I've had this letter through - are they just sending it as they have to or would they really consider employing a pregnant employee who's been off sick?!
Don't want to get my hopes up and then not get the job.
I've applied for a permanent post before and didn't get the job - I'm useless at interviews.blush

I would assume they are sending it because as a temp you can be considered if you apply and it saves you writing out a new form.

You should have as much chance as anyone else.

I hope so, just assumed that they wouldn't renew my contract or consider me for a post as I'm currently on the sick and being pregnant. I'm useless with these things.
Thanks for the replies

Legally you have as much chance as anyone as they cannot discriminate against sickness or pregnancy. In reality it depends on the people making the descision.

I thought as much, based on the interviewers I highly doubt it sad
