Pregnant and going for check ups
Hi there

one of my staff member is pregnant. She will be going for montly check ups. Usually this takes almost half a day or more. Can she take sick leave for this - and on what grounds? It seems management will insist on annual leave, they are of the opinion that they maternity leave annual leave must be used annual leave for check ups.

I feel this is unfair.

please advise
