Okay! I need some advice please!
The past year I've worked for a small family run business doing all there administration. I'm now 29 weeks pregnant about to submit my claim form for maternity leave and they've just told me they can't afford to pay me maternity leave if I'm not there as business hasn't exactly been booming.
They have said I'm welcome to keep my job if I take a part time contract which will allow the government to pay me maternity however I'm in the process of getting a house from the government (Me and my long term partner split during the 13th week of pregnancy and he left me with no home - I'm now going to become a single mum). When I go into a council house they will of course check if an afford to pay the rent and not get in debt etc. But I don't know what to do because it looks like I'm going to be either losing my job or losing the opportunity to get a house and be able to provide for my little one.
Absolutely torn at the fact they have done this to me knowing I'm expecting a baby in less than 11 weeks! If anyone knows of anything that I can do please let me know 😢
