    Questions to ask are:
    1. Are you DEFINITELY the only one being subjected to this?
    2. If so, why ie is it due to you having been on maternity? Are you the only one there that has been on maternity recently?

    If the different treatment is due to this then there are potentially issues under the Equality Act. Different and unfair treatment due to maternity is prohibited. I would speak to local CAB who can give you some definite advice. I'm not great on employment law but I do know the Equality Act prohibitsit

    Doh! Just saw that you live in Ireland so not sure if Equality Act applies but I would have thought you would have anti-discriminatory legislation that prohibit this.

    I wouldn't have thought that they would be able to tell you when to take hols - I know where i work we can't take hols june-sept - but thats written into our contract - but i have not heard of telling people they HAVE to take their hols at a certain time - try looking on the NERA website - its an employment website for Ireland
    good luck x
