Ah bless ya hearts, my OH got made redundant back in October, he is a mechanic and since then he has only been able to get temping work with an agency, so money has been really tight.
How long have you and OH been with the company hon??

Hey Gill are you definitely both being made redundant?? That sucks if you are! xx
Jan 31, 2009 4:47PM
I'm really sorry, it must be a real worry for you. I hope you manage to find something new soon.

Hi Gill,I used to work in a local hotel but decided not to return once my mat leave ended due to the hours and weekends they wanted me to work!
Just recently found out about 6 staff have been made redundant,i know alot of them are very upset.Cant help thinking i made the right choice not to go back,as i now work part time,which suits better and who is to say my job would of been safe?!
All i can say is maybe go to CAB and/or find out all what your entitled too.
Good luck x

OH just rang he is putting in a transfer to a different department so fingers crossed he will get it , its a long shot though as everyone else has the same idea!
I was wondering though, my mat leave doesnt end until May now if i get made redundant in March what happens with my mat money?
Oh and Sam the department is closing and they are making 26 redundancys which is more than the department so we are assuming its definate

Sorry to hear that. My OH was made redundant a couple of weeks ago, but it must be hard with both of you going. I'm not sure that they can make you redundant whilst on maternity leave - I think they have to wait until you are due back. Unless you take voluntary redundancy. It might be worth checking out. Also legally they have to pay you for your notice period plus holiday (which you should still accrue whilst on maternity leave). They also have to pay 1 weeks redundancy pay for ever year of service which is tax free.
Hope your OH gets tranfered - again legally the company have to be able to prove there are no alternative jobs within the company before dismissing anyone - otherwise you could sue for unfair dismissal.
All the best Steph

Thanks Katie, i hope it does continue, better than nothing.
Just worked out online what oh and me are entitled to and because we both started under 21 i get 2 weeks and oh gets 6 dont mean to sound ungrateful but its a bit crap!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
