I’m currently 18weeks pregnant with my first. Still haven’t told work. I have a scan tomorrow and I planned to tell my manager on Wednesday providing everything went well at the appointment.
So today 9am I get to work and everyone gets called in for a meeting. There is a total of 7 of us and they want to make 1 person redundant. We have individual consultations on Wednesday! The day I planned to tell my manager. Honestly I don’t think it will be me just because of certain important duties I do. But if I say something now I feel like they are going to think I’m only telling them now because of the redundancy’s. If I don’t tell them someone will get made redundant and then I’ll announce my pregnancy and leave in 4/5 months. Meaning they will in effect be down by two people and I could have saved someone’s job. If I do this will I have a job to come back to after maternity.
I told my employers on the day they announced redundencies. Totally by accident. I took voluntary redundancy and was paid my package plus my maternity pay in full on the day I left. Tell them asap. But make sure you know what your desired outcome is and tell them that. Good luck and congrats x
