That did not affect her hiring process. We also, had one employee who was on maternity leave, and we had a temporary employee filling her spot. Once she returned her postion was waiting for her.One bad example that I could mention was when my sister was pregnant. She had left on maternity leave, and when she was ready to return her position was filled and she was let go. It was upsetting and right away she wanted to sue the organization. She went through alot in that organization, and in the end she did sue and win. Compared to my work place and her's was a major difference. I enjoyed going to work, the hiring process was always fair and management valued it's employees by being as accomodating as possible to them. That's why there are employees currently working there past ten years. Yet at her past employer, employees would leave quickly. Management did not have a good reputation at all.

It is strongly believed to abide by them in order for an organization
