Re: Pregnant staff

I am currently working in a small retail outlet for less than 3 months.

I am in my mid trimester of my pregnancy thus I experience morning sickness most of the time.

1. Can my current employer terminate my employment based on unsatisfactory attendance? I know I have been with the outlet for less than 3 months, but my morning sickness was so bad sometimes that I needed the rest at home. So far, I only have 9 days MC and have requested for only 2 days leave.

2. Should I inform my employer earlier if I needed the MC; eg; cannot come to work on Monday and do I have to inform my employer on that day (after or before getting my MC)?

3. In case my employer cannot terminate me based on unsatisfactory attendance (which I provided with MC), am I entitled to 2 months pay day leave when I give birth later?

Please advice.

1. As long as you have MC, it may be unreasonable for the employer to terminate your service.
2. Inform as soon as possible.
3. It is too early to tell.
