My employers discriminated against me from the moment I told them I was pregnant.
I work at hourly rate, not a salary and they tried to cut my pay by £1.50 an hour due to pregnancy related sickness.
Then they tried to cut my hours, and when I objected they told me they would force me to take maternity leave at 28 weeks pregnant, even though I hadn’t been sick for over a month.
When I finally took my maternity leave at 36 weeks pregnant, they told me they had misplaced my matb1 form and couldn’t pay my statutory maternity pay without it.
All this left me so stressed and worried thinking I wouldn’t have the money to support my child, I went into premature labour the day after my employer told me they had lost the matb1 form.
