I work in a male-dominated field, however recently my boss hired a woman to work with us.
In the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repair plus upgrade business, only about 1% of employees are females. The male-dominated field can be a hard locale for a woman. I have been toiling for the same Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C corporation for the past 10 years, but last year my boss hired a woman to work on commercial Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repairs. About many weeks after she was hired, she got pregnant. Now the time is getting ready for her to have the baby plus my co-workers plus I found out that she qualifies for maternity leave. I have been toiling for the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C corporation for 10 years plus I have had more than two children. I have not qualified for paternity leave at all while in that time. I’m really upset.. A new employee has only been here for many weeks plus she already qualifies for more than five weeks of paid leave. I want paternity leave if my coworkers are going to get maternity leave. I said something to the human resources department of the commercial Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C contracting dealer. The woman asked myself and others if I wanted to file a complaint, but I suppose that most people in the corporation will see the complaint. If I start causing troubles, I am absolutely going to end up with the worst repairs plus upgrade jobs that nobody else wants. I have to be totally honest. I actually didn’t guess this would end up being the problem when the boss hired Sheila. It’s ironic that I’m complaining about being treated fairly, however for the first more than five weeks Sheila was employed , nobody treated her fairly.
