Title: New Pregnant Employee
Post by: roughlady on December 21, 2012, 01:07:02 pm
Hi Mommies, need some advice. Bagong hire lang ako, I think 3rd week ko pa lang on this new company then I recently found out that I'm pregnant mag 3 months na. I don't have any hint since I don't experience pregnancy signs. \ Is there any ground na pwedeng gawin sakin ng company once I told them about it. I was planning to tell them next january 2013 pa.

hi sis ganyan din ako :)

first work ko pa un :)
1 month palang ako sa work nung nalaman ko na preggy ako :)

sobrang worried din ako sis.. baka kasi iterminate ako or hindi ako iregular or etc.,

then natsismis na ako ng mg ktrabaho ko nung 3 months na tyan ko..then nakarating sa boss ko.. bakit daw need ko pa itago...wala naman daw un kaso sa company... then nung 6 months ako naregular din ako sis at nung nanganak ako nakuha ko lahat ng benefits ng company... maternity leave  & yung sa philhealth ko sila lahat ng asikaso nun ..

mas maganda sis if ipaalam mo na habang maaga pa... hindi ka naman matatangal sa work nian... believed me..

hehe.. naka-relate ako sa topic na to ah..

 sis.. ganyan din ako dati. since its my 2nd job na. sa semicon company ako.
and nasa probationary period ako nun which is 6 months nun malaman ko na preggy ako.
i think its my 4th month na as a probi.

ganyan din ang feeling ko at ang iniisip ko noon,. kaya di ko muna sinabi.
natatakot nga ako dahil baka materminate ako dahil hindi pa nga ako regular.
kinausap ko muna yung co-worker ko na girl din. sabi din niya na sabihin ko na
dahil unang-una, American Company kami at walang discrimination samin,
fair lang ang boys sating mga girls..technician kasi ako.

ang nangyarri noon, kinausap ng co-worker ko na amo namin.
sabi din na natatakot nga ako sabihin dahil baka hindi ako maregular..
after that, tinawagan ako ng visor ko na babae..
alam mo ba yung nangyari? natawa lang sya sa iniisip ko.
mali kasi yung naiisip ko na iterminate ako, ang nagngyare pa
e sila pa ang nagalala sakin na baka nahihirapan ako or what, napapagod bako sa work namin..
tapos sinamahan niya pako sa clinic para mag maternity notification...hehe.

ikaw din sis.. wag ka matakot. hindi ka naman siguro materminate kasi dahil preggy ka.
katulad namin ni sis Xianne..
hindi naman siguro magiging big deal yun pagdating sa work mo
kung nagagawa mo parin naman lahat ng responsibilities mo...then why not?

@marheyceldan Hay medyo nakakaworry nga un sis pero wala naman magagawa boss if things like that happens syempre you already have a family. Ako nga, i think they know I'm single and walang dependent but actually i already have my daughter. Single mom ako then gkaron ng bf then ayon nabuntis at magkakababy ulit. Lahat ng team ko dito puro lalaki pati boss ko so I am also worried din pero I guess the truth will set us free. Pray na lang tayo kay Papa God that everything will turn out fine. ;)

Hi super relate naman ako sa topic na to. Don't worry sis, isipin mo na lang na nagbigay ng swerte sa iyo si Baby. Imagine 2 blessings yun, may bago kang work plus may baby ka pa. swerter ang buntis sis, lalo maiisip ng boss mo na need mo mong magka-work dahil magkaka-baby ka. ganyan din ako two years ago, nalaman ko lang na preggy ako nung nag-medical me required bago ka makapasok sa company. at first worried din ako kasi baka di na ituloy yun appointment ko dahil nga preggy ako, wala pa ako pinipirmahan na contract nun. requirements pa lang, pero sinabi ko agad sa HR at sa magiging supervisor ko. Sinabi sa akin na may senate bill na daw yan, hindi pwedeng maging hindrance ang pagka buntis sa work mo. as long maganda ang performance mo wala magiging problema. sinabi ko din sa magiging boss ko yun, kahit di ko pa siya kilala yun agad inopen ko. sinabi niya lang sa akin na nagbigat daw ng swerte yun baby ko. imagine may new work na ako, probi position plus entitled sa lahat ng benefits. walang masama jan sis, mas ok if sabihin mo na sa kanila. wag kang ma-worry. :) smile! merry xmas..

Hi mga sisses!

Update lang, I already told my heads and hr. Sobrang happy lang kasi wala naman daw grounds iyon since hindi pwede idiscriminate ang mga preggy. They say that I can work pa rin as long as na kaya ko and good thing I haven't experience iyong morning sickness. :) Thanks sa lahat ng ngreply dito! You are really a big help for me.

Been in this situation sis. Pero nung time nun alam ko talaga na buntis ako.  During the hiring process nga hindi ko talaga open up yung situation ko. Then yung confirmed na passed ako, ayun tsaka ko sinabi sa hr director. Then what he asked to me is "Since you are pregnant, what are your plans? Are you still going to teach after you gave birth?" So parang sinigurado niya na I'll stay after I gave birth. Then nung nagpamedical ako, hindi na pinarequire yung xray.

Siguro sis depende sa nature ng work mo. Kung pwede ito sa buntis or not. Pero mas maganda nga na sabihin mo at least they will be informed regarding your status at the same time para na rin sa benefits mo.

Yes sis, I already told them and I'm happy naman for the affirmative result. Un nga lang, ako magproprocess ng paglalakad ng SSS benefits since walang staff na gagawa pero ayos na rin kasi i know they are concern with me. I can do my work naman since all day lang ako nakaupo at nakaharap sa computer. :)

Hi mommies, share ko lang din experience ko. I was 1 month pregnant when I signed the contract with my current employer. Before signing, the HR asked me why I was not able to undergo the medical xray, I told her that I am pregnant. I was expecting a negative reaction and a discussion na babawiin ang job offer. I was surprised na simpleng "okay" lang ang sinagot ng HR. Tapos ok na. Nakuha ko din lahat ng maternity benefits ng company nung nanganak ako. :)

This was explained to me before by our accountant kaso years ago na yun sis :D Nakalimutan ko na. I had browse the SSS website, qualifications and sample computation were presented. Here's the link sis --> https://www.sss.gov.ph/sss/index2.jsp?secid=53&cat=4&pg=null

Scroll down up to the bottom of the page sis, may clear example sila. Basta alam mo na yung delivery schedule mo, you can compute.

i believe there is nothing wrong with being pregnant even when you are just newly-hired.  otherwise, that would be discrimination against pregnant workers.  unless, your job entails work description that would endanger your pregnancy, then i guess you could sort this out with the management.

good thing, your company understood.  God bless on your pregnancy

Post by: Aicka on May 06, 2013, 09:31:26 pm
Hi guys! I'm Aicka. I just had my pregnancy. Well last March I do have my menstruation but then by April I didn't got one up until now. I did Pregnancy Test 2 times already and all of it was positive. Ayun, so hindi na ko nagpaligoy ligoy pa. It's really positive. Then I got hired and I'll be starting my work tomorrow as a Management trainee, hindi pa kasi ako nagpapa-check up ee. Pero I'll be having one maybe next week. Gusto ko lang makahingi ng mga opinions sa mga working preggies like me. medyo natatakot kasi ako, When I was 18 I got pregnant then nalaglag siya kasi I was on my OJT. Ayoko na kasi ulit mangyare yun. I don't wanna lose my job and specially my baby. So opinions po :)

How do I file discrimination against pregnant workers?

Post by: gheng on July 07, 2014, 05:51:15 pm
Same here.

I was hired January and nalaman ko na preggy ako mga April na. I was denial pa so pinatagal ko pa hanggang May. hindi pa ako regular nun, so super takot talaga ako kasi wala pa ako ipon at hindi pa rin alam ng family ko.

It was our vaccine schedule sa office, una ko pang nasabi dun sa doctor kesa sa boss ko at HR namin. so after a day nung schedule, nagreview si HR, nalaman nila na preggy nga ako.. hehe.

Napagsabihan ako na sana daw eh sila ang nakaalam (eh sa isip ko, family ko nga di pa alam, panu pa kaya sila :).

i felt that time na ma-teterminate ako kasi nasabi ng superior ko na irereview nila yung status ko sa company. pero pinakita ko naman na kahit preggy ako, na walang magbabago sa perfomance ko.

hehe so happy na ne-regular naman ako at napromote pa. prayers lang at lakas ng loob ang kailangan. they dont have grounds to terminate pregnant women kung nagagawa pa rin naman nila yung responsibilities natin noh!!! :D
