    My boss just told me I can't leave the premises to go I my midwife appointment or I will be disciplined! He has to go take care if some business At home (take his dog to the vet!) so j can't go

    I'm going whether he likes it or not. I pointed out that they have a legal obligation to let me attend appointment... He caved in and said if have to make the time up another day so i pointed him towords our policies that state not only do we need time off for it but we have to be paid for the time. He tried to give me some sob story about his dog beig sick and might die which is sad and all but he's known for three week and I reminded him yesterday.

    He's going to do my nut in if I have to fight for every appointment!!

    I've had issues with him ever since I announced. He was lovely when u had my mc a year and. Half ago "not my fault your baby died, now stop being dramatic and come back to work. Wasn't a baby anyway, just a period that came a little late" I was seething (I was 4.5 wks)

    I would be making sure it takes 2 hours if I were you - even if it means sitting on a bench for 20 minutes somewhere waiting for time to pass!

    Legally, they have to give you time off for the appointments, so they can huff and moan all they like - you need to see the MW.

    Screw the lot of them!!

    Don't even rise to it you don't need the stress! I'd write down every incident n if it continues report him to powers that be that's just ridiculous!

    N don't rush back n make sure you still get ya lunch break!

    Grrrr

    Some people have no clue. He should know the rules rather than be stressing you out.

    Is this your booking appointment? Mine took an hr and a half and we had no breaks really, so 2 hours is reasonable to take.

    Sounds horrendous babe. It's small minded people like that that don't matter in life. Especially at this stage! He will know your rights and is trying to push the boundaries. Try and relax and enjoy your appt, he is sooooo not worth it x x
