my sister is 5 months pregnant and shes been told shes not been there quite 2 years so she wont be entitled to any maternity leave pay its shocking theyve treat her like crap since she told them she was pregnant even threatening her with disiplinary meetings if she didnt go in when she was called up on her day off!!
do you know any information for redundancy? My work went bust and closed in January but I still get smp, them when that's meant to finish in sept I get redundancy, can I work now or will I have to wait?
Ok - I've been working in my current post for 5 months, and I'm employed on a 12 months contract basis. I work for a very small company (I am employee 3) and am concerned that if I (hopefully) become pregnant in the next month or so, my contract won't get renewed in June. If, in June, they choose not to renew my contract - will I be entitled to SMP? The main reason for this being that as a business, I'm not sure they would be able to afford to keep me on maternity and pay another employee simultaneously.
Am totally confused about all of this!!! My husband and I desperately want a baby - every year we find another excuse to delay it by another year - earlier this year it was due to redundancy.
If any of you can help that would be great. The links provided by Stir Crazy have helped re-assure me and I think we should just go for it and see what happens but would like to be clear as to what my rights are.
