Hi everyone, I'm new to 2nd tri only posted in here a few times!
Anyway I have a quick question about work, I told them I was pregnant when I was about 7 weeks, did my risk assessment and stuff. But they havn't asked me for confirmation that I'm pregnant at all. I was talking to a colleague who is also pregnant but about a month or so behind me, she works on a different department and she said that they've been constantly asking her to bring in confirmation. I was just wondering if I should ask my manager if I need to give them confirmation? Could this affect my smp or anything if i don't?
They havn't asked for evidence for my appointments at all apart from the other day when I had to change my shift because it clashed with my 16week check up (I did tell my manager a couple of weeks before the rota was done for that week but she forgot) and my manager asked if I 'had a letter', I said I had a card but it was at home, she didn't mention it again.
So yeah should I say something just to be sure? And also what is 'confirmation' do I just ask my midwife to write it down or something? Sorry for rambling on a bit any help would be appreciated.
Thanks ladies, yeah the girl at work said they keep asking for her matb1 form and I told her you don't get it till 20-odd weeks and they won't give it out any earlier so they'll just have to wait, work should know that tbh its not like there's never been pregnant people at work before lol. Thanks for clearing the confirmation thing up for me.
I didnt have to give any proof until they asked for my MATB1 form; i got it at my 24 week midwife appointment and thats all that your work will need from you... this along with your maternity dates for them to process your SMP
They should be doing risk assessments with you every 4 weeks, maybe at your next one is where you can ask some questions if you have any xx
