April Fools…. NOT!
1st April 2015
1st day back at work after being on maternity leave for 5 months. My 2nd son was born on the 11th November 2014.
On this day, I “lost” my job.
Some females (even males) are not as lucky as I am. I went into survival mode. I gathered my resources available (people, documents, research & my faith) & I made a conscious decision yet again to not let this slide.
I was scared, nervous, confused, didn’t know who I could trust from the company but I knew I had to fight this.
Again I did the bravest thing & decided to take this further by hiring a labour lawyer who was frikken amazing
This scenario was like something from the movies,,,,, if someone doesn’t like you & they want you out they will do everything. They will try and dig up anything against you in order to make you out to be the bad one…… Karma Is a bitch I tell you!
My advice to anyone but especially females in the workforce:
know the Industrial Relations law. know your rights. know where to gather information. know who and whats available out there to defend yourself. don’t be dubious. don’t be ditsy. don’t mind your own business when it comes to business. know whats going on. know who’s who. do your part. do your job and don’t cut corners. know who you can and cant trust. back everything up. keep a record of everything
This was the 2nd time I had “lost” my job – the first time after returning from maternity leave with my 1st son.
Imagine just having gone through the birth of a child. The pressure of having to be a mom and getting used to the broken sleep, looking after another life, routine, etc to have to deal with something like this.
Its no joke.
You:doubt everything. feel insecure, feel anxious all the time, feel incompetent, feel lost, feel stressed.
I urge you – feel all of these things, but pull yourself towards yourself, lean on every bit of support that you have and ask for help. Hand in heart don’t be foolish or proud – go out, seek the help you need
