I have been offered a new job. It’s quite lucrative and a high level position. A few days before the job offer came I found out I was pregnant. I can’t tell the employer because it’s so early on, I need to wait to see how the pregnancy takes. I’m nervous if and when I do tell them it will affect how they treat me or feel they will think I misled them.
Am I obligated to share the news? Has anyone gone through this?
It’s the reality of the situation that women have to take time away from work to have children. I know an employer legally has to allow it but that doesn’t mean it won’t affect my standing with the company and my boss. What would you do?
