She said openly that motherhood and work life should not mix

When I became pregnant with my first born I was working within one of the largest county councils in the country. I had been there for over a year on a long term contract and my manager was in the final stages of sorting out a full time contract for me to sign with HR. Because I began to show I let my manager know that I was pregnant the day before we were scheduled to sign everything off and told her my due date… Instead of having a meeting to sign, I was met with a letter stating I would no longer be required past a certain date – meaning I missed being given maternity pay by 24 hours. It had all been worked out to a tee…
not only did I not have a job to go back to but felt I didn’t have the maternity pay that would ease the transition at the time.
She was a childless female in a very male dominated environment. She has since done this to three other females and has said openly that motherhood and work life should not mix, so she makes the “choice” for them…
