I've been told there is no budget to extend my contract. This wasn't an issue for the last 3 extensions. Precedent has been set with 4 other expectant mothers prior to me, where an honorary contract is put in place for those 6 weeks allowing the person to claim full mat leave. This is confirmed by my union. Do they have to honour this? Or will I be out of a job 6 weeks before I'm due? They have also confirmed that my duties will be absorbed by another member of staff as the role is still required.

Thank you! Your subscription has been confirmed. You'll hear from us soon.
