I need help! I've been employed in the same school for four years without a contract. During the last two months of employment I was on maternity leave. Before I left I was told by my union that my leave wouldn't be considered a break in service. I went back to work after nine months and was then told by my principal that I didn't qualify for my permanent status. Is he right? I am paid at a daily rate. If anyone can shed any light on this I'd be really grateful!
