Pregnant before my 1 year anniversary at my employer
Being pregnant before being eligible for maternity leave, how will that work? I’m concerned about what will happen once I disclose this information to my boss. This is my first time being pregnant before reaching 1 year at any employer I’ve worked at. Advice is much appreciated!!
I have been working for twenty plus years. In the last 5 years I have been under the same boss. This person is very degrading. He usually sets his sites in one particular person and that person is his target. He humiliates, degrades and throws in some swearing. At the end of the meeting you feel like you've been beaten down. Its almost as if it's all a show for the other people. Women seem to be a frequent target. There was a particular incident that he was screaming so loud on the phone that we heard his ranting all through the building. It's not easy to just throw everything you've worked for away and quit but sometimes I think it's cone down to more than simply sucking it up and letting it go. Any thoughts?
My company does not offer fertility benefits, and I'm trying to make the case to management that they should - in order to be competitive. (I'm not in HR.) Has anyone had any experience with this? Any best practices to share?
I have worked very hard (probably harder than someone with a degree) to get where I am in my career. I started out as a data entry clerk and through my hard work, I have worked up to being a Contracts Manager. I am now looking to relocate and find a similar position at another company; however, I am finding it difficult to find a job due to not having a college education. What can I do to show or prove to potential employers that I can do the job just as good as any other candidate?
I'm about to start my leave but I'm feeling anxious about tying up loose ends before then...are there any general last-minute things people do at work before departing? I want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything!
