Supply and pregnancy

    I was wondering if anyone can offer me some advice? I'm looking to do some supply from January and I have a couple of appointments lined up for next week. The question is should I tell them that I'm pregnant? (due in May)
    I'm not showing just yet (but come January I will be).
    I'm inclined to be open and honest, but then I've read similar posts and some people advise not to tell perspective employees!
    I'm really not sure what to do.

    Thank you

    Wow - congrats!


    No. No need at all to tell them!

    It is no business of theirs, firstly. And secondly if you did tell them and then they decided not to take you on, you could claim that this was discrimination. Their defence would be to say that they didn't know . . .

    So they will not want to know.

    Best wishes
