I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for getting out of traveling when the job "requires" it.
When I came back from maternity leave last time, my company wanted me to start traveling again right away. I was quite upset because I had been given a non-traveling position but then they had to put me back on the billable work but I didn't think they'd make me travel. They don't "need" me to travel but they don't want to be understanding I guess.
To make a long story short, I ended up getting a doctor's note saying I was depressed and couldn't travel and they had to accept it because of the FMLA. I didn't travel then until dd was 10 months old. I've only made a few trips since, but now I'm pregnant again and I'm already stressed about what will happen when I come back from maternity leave. I don't know if I can pull the same trick again with the doctor's note. Maybe. I've been looking for other jobs but haven't found anything and I can't afford to take a pay cut just yet.
Why aren't there any laws protecting breastfeeding mothers from being separated from their infants!!!!
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
