Ok back story here. I have worked 15 hrs/week for the same company for 7 years. I am currently pregnant and due to start Maternity leave on 1st September.
I have been having problems with SPD and have been signed off for 2 weeks. Will be due back in on Friday night next week.
Work have just phoned to "see how I am" and are concerned as I am signed off till Thursday. So have had 2 weeks off. I was asked (Heavy hints they would like it)if I decided to bring my maternity leave forward! I think I upset her a bit when I told her that the GP had only signed me off for 2 weeks till I could get in and see the physio and that I would be taking her advice as to whether or not I come back before I have the baby. So can I take sick or holiday time before taking my maternity leave or can they make me bring my maternity leave forward?
Thanks I did think that was the case but wanted to make sure I was right before I call them back. I won't be calling them till Tuesday after I have seen the physio and taken advice from her and the gp though.
