Morning all. Im currently 32 and a half weeks pregnant and i work part time. I plan on leaving work 1 week before my due date.
I am working evenings at the moment between 5 and 10pm but im looking to change my hours to work mornings 11-3 as im completely knackard!
If my shift change is granted (which it should be) my shifts will then clash with midwife appointments and a growth scan the hospital have booked me in for.
I am aware i am entitled to paid time off for antenatal appointments, my questions is, can my emplyers say i need to take paid leave as the time off or that i have to change my shift or work my shift after the appointment?
Cant find anything online about it, all it seems to say is im entitled to paid time off.
My employers are a bunch of idiots so i want to know where i stand before i start requesting the time off!
Thanks in advance!
