Six months into my “9-to-5:30 job with occasional overtime,” the position has turned into an 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. every Monday through Friday gig. I receive no extra compensation for these extra hours.
Q: I recently came back to work after my maternity leave, and I’m having a hard time adjusting to the new balance required of me.
I just found out I’m pregnant, and I’ll need to start telling my colleagues and boss within the next six-to-eight-weeks. I’ve never been in this situation before. How do I talk to my boss?
Lately, I’ve been thinking about leaving my job to stay home with my son. One of my closest colleagues is having her last day in the office because she’s leaving to stay at home with her daughter.
