I need help to decide whether I should leave my job or not. I've been TTC for five months and I can't stand another minute of my current job. Does anyone know what rights I have to SMP if I start a new job and get pregnant straight away or if I'm just pregnant when I get new job? Will I still be entitled to six months paid leave or not? Will the amount of SMP be less if I have changed jobs? Help please cos my job is doing my head in.
And good luck - I left a job I truly loathed (well, loved the job, LOATHED my boss, she was evil) when ttc. When I fell pg in my new job, the dates worked out so that I got the enhanced maternity benefits by a month I know if I'd stayed in my former job, I'd not have been pregnant by now. Or I'd be in prison for bossicide.
Not really. I work with pregnant, homeless, young girls. They're great even if they are challenging!! Checked out the link you gave and got my answers. I'll get the leave but need to work for same employer for 26 weeks by the 15th week before EDC to qualify for SMP so I'd have to time it right! If only my Dh was rich and I didn't have to work!!!
Something different I think. Perhaps I'll advertise hairdressing and combine the two!! I'd do anything right now just to leave the place and have the satisfaction of going in and handing my notice in!!
I wrote my resignation letter several weeks before I resigned. I had some important meetings to get out of the way before I resigned, so I sat on it a while, but wanted to get the wording right. The feeling of relief when I finally resigned is like nothing I can describe.
