My Wife got a new job on 19/08/08 with the caveat that after 13 weeks probation she would be made a permanent employee.
These 13 weeks came and went with no negative comments about her or her works.
She had a review on 19th December and the only comment was that he was not vocal enough with the sales team and that they would have another meeting in mid January to discuss some other things mentioned. All regarding parts of the job that she didn't understand and that would require further training etc.
During this time she has found out she is pregnant and is due on 08/06/09! Yay!
She informed them in writing of this on the 05/01/09.
Today she has been informed that her probationary period has been increased, 8 weeks after it officially ended, for how long was not specified, and that she would have a 2nd review on 22/01/09 to discuss this. Her manager also said this was stated in the last review but she must have misunderstood her. Again nothing given in writing to confirm this.
Strangly she was given a £595 pay rise today! Aparently this was given to eveyone, although I think it was planned before she gave them the letter stating she was pregnant.
It was also mentioned that she was dismissive of a request from the sales director regarding of some information yesterday. Another colleague heard this conversation and says this is untrue.
To be honest I don't know what to do and would like some advice on how to fight this. She has had a really bad past 12 months apart from the baby and want to try and help.
Please can anyone offer some sensible advice.
Thnaks in advance
