Ok so I'm 8 weeks pregnant now had to get an emergency scan as I had a consistent pain in my left Overy for 3 days..because I have had a miscarriage before the doctor was insistent I came in so I did. (Everything is fine). the only think is that where I work the manager hates me and always makes me feel inadequate to other staff...she makes my life Hell I have complained but nothing has happened about it...I know she is going to go mad because I had to go to the hospital and get the scan. I know she has no right to but that's the way she is wit me there's tons of other stuff aswel. I'm scared that I'm going to snap and walk out and risk getting the diceplinary. The nurse said pain can be caused by stress a lot and I think that's what's happening I dread going into work and cry most of the time when I'm there. Any advise would be great on what I could do. Thanks guys xxx

It sounds to me that you would be better off without this job. Your child is more important than a self righteous "manager".

Yes I am..can't do much until baby is born. I filed a complaint to about but whether something happens is well beyond me. She did end up going mad and said if this continues she can force me to go on early mat leave as early as 13 weeks before my due date! I said you can't do that unless it's 4 weeks from my due date and Im sick or on a sick note from the doctor. ..she went mad and stormed off. I'm pretty sure that's right xx

I don't believe that your employer can force you to go on maternity leave. As far as I know it's up to your health care professional. It almost sounds to me that she is trying to make you quit.

Hi, if you are based in the UK an employer cannot "force" you to go on mat leave. The only time they can bring your mat leave early is if you are off in the last 4 weeks of your due date or "confinement" and this is only if you are off with. Pregnancy related illness.
your manager needs to tread very carefully as you are heavily protected whilst pregnant. I would try and sit and have a talk with the manager to air how you are feeling and note the outcome. Keep a diary with dates and conversations.

I knew it...I have tried to clear the air between us but she still carries on...I am with a union and going to ring them today as there is no HR department in my place. She just plain bla know doesn't like me and now I'm pregnant I feel she's just going to get worse. I need some legal back behind me. I'm going see if this complaint is dealt with if not I'm going bring my union rep. Yes you are right she does need to tread very carefully. She even tries to make me carry heavy things up 2 flights of stairs! I don't do it of course but she doesn't like it. Thanks guys for confirming it for me xx
