Permanent member of staff to cover my maternity leave
Can any one help me? my employer has hired a permanent member of staff to cover my maternity leave and i haven't even left to have my baby yet. is this allowed?? he keeps asking me whether i'm going to return after having the baby and when i say yes he says, no you won't you'll be a lady of leisure. I am management level and unless some one leaves the company who as at the same level as me before i return i won't have a position to come back to. i thought by law you could only hire a temp or temp to permanent depending if i return. Not giving my job to a new full time permanent member of staff. does anyone know anything about this??:\?
