Hoping someone can offer some advice. Been on maternity leave since June 2019, my team at work are currently under consultancy for redundancy due to coronavirus and the industry I work in is hospitality related so no surprise but hoping I will be ok as one of the longest standing members of the team!
Since I’ve been off my whole team have taken a pay cut, this is in place to last until 31st December.
I can not afford a pay cut as my DD will be in full time nursery, where do I stand with this? As I do not want to make myself more favourable for redundancy...
I should think most people are in a similar position, it's difficult but I suppose you will need to use savings to try to tide you over until December or seek other work. I don't think nursery fees will be classed as exceptional circumstances for you, and no-one else, to remain at your usual salary if the entire company is taking a pay cut. Fingers crossed you can find a solution to manage for the future months. Potentially, you could also speak to your nursery and explain the situation to see if they can offer a repayment package for if/when your normal salary resumes. Good luck.
