This is exactly why companies may not employ some women

I wouldn't if I were a small employer.

My Mrs will take the full lot. I'll just have two weeks

One of my ex bosses did something similar. During the first pregnancy, she was out more than she was in. Ok, it didn't help that her mum was dying at the time. However she was no sooner back from maternity leave when she got knocked up again. Thankfully she took redundancy but she held out til she got the right figure. No loss-such a miserable woman. Had a face that would stop a funeral. I remember saying to her one time no need to make a face. She replied "this is my face!" LOL!

Only love can leave such a mark, only love can heal such a scar.

Sounds like most people in the public sector though to be fair.



I wouldn't go as far as to say most but there is a lot of needless crap within the public sector. It needs to be reshaped and jobs for life need to be a thing of the past.
People here are protected by the ridiculous amounts of red tape that employers have to wade through just to start the dismissal process.



Absolute Fact

Cheers,

Though I think that people with no intention to work shouldn't be breeding at all, I do think that this law has a few holes in.

For instance, what if the second pregnancy turns out to be twins or triplets, parents will be suffering as a result and what if the parent has become unable to work and has three or more children but was once a working member of society.
It sounds like it is intended to punish the poor.

Fairly sure those would be exceptional circumstances. Nobody NEEDS 3 children Wink And if they do, then they should be able to afford them rather than relying on hand outs from the State which is funded by taxpayers. I dunno This argument is available on HF already if you want to search for it Big grin

Companies differ but I work in the public sector, so in my situation, I was only entitled to company maternity pay on the condition that if I didn't return to work, I'd be forced to pay it back. Then I need to be at work for a minimum of 20 weeks when I return before I can either leave or go off on maternity again.

Careful, this kind of post could open a whole can of cylindrical, limbless intertebrates....

Day after day They send my friends away
To mansions cold and grey To the far side of town
Where the thin men stalk the streets While the sane stay underground
Day after day They tell me I can go
They tell me I can blow To the far side of town
Where it's pointless to be high 'Cause it's such a long way down

My bro's got 3. Both he & his wife work full-time. They have all 3 in private education & knowing my brother, he'll want them to go to university too.
I think it's shocking how some work shy keep on breeding.

Only love can leave such a mark, only love can heal such a scar.
