Looking for some advice or if anyone else been in similar position. I am currently on maternity leave and was due to go back to work start of December. I am on a fixed term contract that is due to expire 30th November. I had an interview to go permanent for the same role (didn't get it, stronger candidate), however there are two 18 month contracts advertised and was told I would get one of the temporary contracts. I am only only temporary staff member in the team (rest permanent or agency).
However was called yesterday to say there is a possibility that the jobs will be withdrawn and my contract won't be extended. So in 8 days time may not have a role at all! Not ideal!
Question...Being on maternity should I have a role to go back to (ie if permanent job posted.... technically my job!?). Do I have any rights to challenge this if they don't extend the contract?
