please read and give me your thoughts part two
Original post:Hi everyone..not been on here for a while..had no computer but now its repaired!!
Just wanted to pour my heart out really as im going through a horrible time at work. One of the girls i work with is a horrible bitch to me. Undermines me etc..bit of a bully. Two weeks ago I stuck up for myself and told her to stop..thought was sticking up for myself. Went away on hols for two weeks and returned to my manger saying im the one with the problem and that the girl was very upset that i had spoken to her in such an aggressive way! I couldnt believe what i was hearing. I am now the one with the attitute, who is snappy and aggressive and has upset people in the team! I knew they werent happy about my pregnancy and im wondering if this is time to have a good pop at me. The atmosphere is unbearable and i ended up at the docs...who was lovely and told me i may have ante natal depression..with all the symptoms i listed. Im thinking about taking maternity leave at the earliest possible week now as i need to get out of the place. It will be astruggle financially but my OH is worried about my health. I have no were to turn...i cry every morning on the way to work..its awful...sorry for going on but i just wanted to get all of it down and maybe read some other peoples opinions if you dont mind replying xxx
I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who replied to my post. It has given me a huge boost and I see that I am not the only one in this situation.
I returned to work last Wednesday after two working days and the bank hol wkd off. I originally had a sick note from the day I went off....reading Ante natal depression and stress at work. A few days later I returned to the Dr and got him to write me a medical cert saying I was fit for work now providing I had support as I had had the wkd to get my thougts together, plus I need the money as I dont get sick pay as not been with company for more than a year. I knew I had to go back to work to face this girl and my manger and try sort it out. I gave my manger my sick note and medical cert and she accepted that I was ok to resume work providing we had a three way meeting (manager, me, nasty girl) We had the meeting which went ok....although you could tell the girl was really pissed about it.
Anyway, I completed nearly two days at work when my employers who seconded me phoned in the office telling me to go home until I could be seen by their Occy Health Dr....which may take a week. I said would I get paid and they said NO!!! As I dont qualify for sick pay as not been with company for a year.
I phoned ACAS this morning (they help with maternity rights) and they said as ive beeen sent home on medical/maternity suspension then the law states I should be paid in full!!!
Im yet to get an answer from my employers..they havent returned my phone calls..im just sitting at home feeling totally lost and upset..worrying about loosing my wages even though I returned to work with my Drs say so only to get sent home until my occy health appointment which will be god knows when!! With no pay.
Im so sorry to rant ladies..its a shit day.
