PrEgNaNcY AnD JoB InTeRvIeW

Yesterday, I received a call from a company inviting me to a job interview at their premise. I applied for the job just a few weeks ago with confidence that they will call me for an interview..(since the nature of the company is almost similar to my current company (competitor) and not many medical company in Malaysia). I was excited at first but "Ok Oo.. I am pregnant".

Should I tell them that I am pregnant?
Or
Can I just walk in the interview, impress them with my background and qualification while they are looking at my bulging belly and thinking whether they should hire me?

Well I decided to tell them straightforward. I do not want to waste the interviewer time nor my time.

I told the caller that I am 3 months pregnant and my due date is middle of July and I asked her to let the Dept Head know about this and let me know whether he still interested to interview me. She called me back half an hour later and... " We are sorry, it is not advisable to hire a pregnant woman. May be you can try again after your delivery"..
Ha haa..Well... sounds familiar right?

Hmm the sad part is:-
I have been eyeing for any suitable position in the company for the past 2 years..never they advertise any vacant job during my non pregnancy days (which equivalent to 14months)..

I do understand why they will not take the risk of hiring me (if I get laa kann)
I have to attend the interview on 4th of February
Most likely they will decide the best applicant by end of February
If I get the job, I will tender my resignation with 1 month notice early March
Start working early April
and off to maternity leave early July
It means that I will only work for 3 months before I pop!

So memang me tak dak rezeki... huhuhuhu

But I found something in WORKSMART
A pregnant woman is not obliged to tell the employer that she is pregnant until the end of 15th weeks before the baby is due. If you feel that you have not been given a job on the grounds of your sex, or on any grounds relating to pregnancy or children then you may be able to take a claim against the employer who was interviewing you. You should seek legal advice as soon as possible from your union or the Citizens Advice Bureau or an employment lawyer.

and HERE

Q : Do you have to disclose your pregnant in job interview?
A : No, and it's illegal for them to ask.

Bestnya if me got the job.. the distance between the factory and my mom and parents in law is just 15minutes!! Bestkan...

Never mind..next time laa..

Rozy!!! Congrats!!! for your soon-to-be lil bundle of joy!

Hugs for the job interview...benda ni pun pernah kena kat i dua kali...masih terngiang-ngiang lagi kata2 yg keluar dari mulut perempuan anak-3, "jangan sebab u pregnant sekarang, u nak buat alasan tak nak buat sesetengah kerja..Lepas dia cakap camtu, I called it quit! tak sampai keje sebulan pun...

masa anak pertama pulak, dapat dream job jugak but requires me to travel a lot..so dah 3 weeks keje, found me preggie, i inform, diaorang macam bengang..so i switch to part-time, keje bodo2 jer...

itulah sekarang ni i kalu nk preggie..i'm a bit hesitated coz unlucky for career masa preggie..sedih jugak...

Rozy said...

Confession of a Coffeeholic Mama-Miya said...

woah br tau ngandung..tertinggal LRT sungguh beta. ke dah bg tau, aku lupa...adeh, otak karat btol.

eh, u can complain about them under discrimination act tau. busuk giler!!

mmg kalo matsalleh, benda2 personal company tak patut tahu. even takde nak kena isi borang peribadi kata dah kawin lom. bukan cam msia. kalo nak tanye cam sembang kawan2 takpe..kalo mgmt tanye dah cam invading privacy.
