    I have already asked for my maternity leave to start 1st Jan, and I have one week booked for after xmas. This has been accepted, and I had originally planned to go back into work [as I have been off on sick], and book the rest of my holidays to make my weeks shorter and easier.
    I now have no intention of going back to work as my back in incredibly painful at times and I don't wanna end up in hospital again. I work in a factory so the work is too heavy for me at this stage.
    I don't know what to do as my bosses have been very mean since I notified them of my pregnancy and I know they might try and con me out of my holiday pay :(
    Holidays don't get carried over in work, if we don't take them we don't even get paid for them.
    As I am on sick leave, does this mean I will not get the holidays that I'm entitled to take?
