I told my manager that I’d be going through IVF treatment and might need a day or two off which I would take using my annual leave. Within weeks they were telling me my performance had dropped and they took away my £10k bonus which makes up a lot of my salary and this was before I even started IVF treatment.
The pressure was really on as I had to work twice as hard through a difficult treatment process to prove my worth.
I then went on to have a miscarriage a month later due to the stress and I took one day off to recover because I was so worried about losing my job.
Im about to go through another cycle as a restructure begins. As I’m on a ‘developing in role’ rating they can make me redundant with no questions asked.
