Job Interview

Hello ladies, so I have a job interview in a few days.. I was wondering if I should go or call & cancel seems how I only have 3 1/2 months left? Also, if I take the job, can I go on maternity leave or do I have to be there for awhile before I can do that?

I think you have to work for a year to get maternity leave
If you really need the job I'd go and just be honest tell them how far along you are and how long you plan to work also tell them as soon as your ready you will come back after the baby  is born

Why not go. You're gonna need a job sooner as later. Little money is better than none if you aren't hurting you or your like one on the job.  As far as the maternity leave it depends on the companies policy. Some start benefits after 6 months others can start as soon as you're hired. Again just depends on the companies policies.

Go. They can't not hire you for pregnancy, its discrimination. They also cannot ask you if you are pregnant. You can figure out the rest when the time comes
