Kaykayxo Posted August 18, 2017 Share Posted August 18, 2017 I am currently just entering my second tri of pregnancy. The job I have was originally a PT position , as I was in university up til spring. It felt more so like full time though. It is a small business (salon type) and my boss who owns the salon has had issues with finding employees. I am one of the longest workers to last accoriding to customers . I have seen her go through several employees within days or weeks since I started in January . While I was working literally almost every day and in school I didn't mind the money. Now it has just been her and I for awhile. Well due to my pregnancy I have been having aches and sickness etc. Called in sick twice. Last night contracted some sort of flu or mild food poisoning (person I ate out with had it as well so I know its not my usual nausea from being preggo). I texted her saying there is no way I can work in AM and she flipped !!! I feel guilty to make her work her shift and mine since its just us two and she already has a heavy workload but with my pregnancy I cannot handle working 6 days a week. Not to mention this was a virus that could potentially be contagious. We agreed she will hire someone new but she always has so many issues finding someone and I feel trapped. If I am in bed with flu AND pregnant I feel like I sb entitled to stay in bed. She still expects me to work a shift in the afternoon than work sat all day. I hate disappointing people but I'm reaching my limits. I can't be out of work but I can't be the only person she relies on when originally this was a part time position and after I leave I will 100% not be coming back . It is not a job I would have as a career and though I take my work serious I'm not going to be her only backup for her own company when I'm not even that invested !!!! What do I do? Link to comment
