I don't know what I'm doing

March 25th, 2015 at 07:42 am

I just spoke to my employer. They were no help about my return to work. My manager said she had spoken to the people manager about my return on Sunday. Apparently a letter is on its way to me with a date arranged for a meeting. It's cutting it close, I'm due back next week.

While on the phone, I mentioned again about wanting to change my contract. I was told that I have to honour my old/current contract until that's sorted. The entire reason I am changing my days is due to childcare. Me and DH are going to work opposite days from each other so that someone is always home with the kids. If I can't get this sorted, I might need to leave. Dh said he would pick up hours. I wasn't prepared for this. I haven't job hunted in years.

ETA: Dh and I are both contracted a Sunday. The plan after J was born was that one of us would change. He's tried.

    Oh dear. I hope something works out.

    I sure hope it works out. Is there any possibility to get childcare temporarily for the one day you both need to work, it seems less expensive than not working.

    Do you have family who could watch the kids in the short term until things get sorted out?

    Crossing my fingers that you hear some good news. CCF has a good point about childcare; perhaps that could be an option?

    Hope you get some good news and can stay on at your job, it would be a shame if you had to leave

    Thanks everyone, I'm hoping for good news too although dh doesn't think so. My mum isn't really well enough to watch them and dh and his mum have fallen out.

    I'm sorry that's happening. Hope things work out.
