So ny hubby just got laid off at work & I am at home with our 3 year old & six month old. I was working full time before I went off on maternity leave, so hubby went back to work after being a full time stay at home dad. I rang ny employer to say I am thinking of coming back partime to start with as we need money…obviously. My employer stated that they don’t have to take me back until my six months us up & even then he doesn’t know if there will be a position for me with the way the company is going right now. I honestly thought I had more rights & was able to get my position back. I rang fairwork & apparently they can get rid of me with notice. Hubby has applied for many other jobs but there’s honestly not much out there unless you are a backpacker or someone who will work for less than minimum wage. Now we are literally in struggle town.
