I labor in a male-dominated field, however recently my boss hired a woman to labor with us.
In the HVAC service and upgrade business, only about 1% of employees are females.
The male-dominated field can be a hard locale for a woman. I’ve been working for the same HVAC company for the past 10 yearsâ€¦ Last year my boss hired a woman to labor on commercial HVAC repairs. About multiple months after she was hired, she got pregnant. Now the time is getting ready for her to have the baby and my co-workers and I found out that she qualifies for maternity leave. I’ve been working for the HVAC company for 10 years and I have had many children. I have not qualified for paternity leave at all while I was in that time. I am truly upset.. A new employee has only been here for multiple months and she already qualifies for multiple 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 HVAC contracting business. The woman asked myself and others if I wanted to file a complaint, but I know that everyone in the corporation will see the complaint. If I start causing problems, I am honestly going to end up with the worst repairs and upgrade tasks that nobody else wants. I have to be totally honest. I unquestionably didn’t think this would end up being the problem when the boss hired Sheila. It’s ironic that I’m complaining about being treated fairly, then for the first multiple months Sheila was employed , nobody treated her fairly.
