So, we had a new female employee start in Accounting this week and this morning she was inquiring about Maternity Leave because she is a little over three months pregnant. Her boss is livid claiming she lied to us by not disclosing she was pregnant during the interview process. I tried explaining to the manager about the legality of the situation when he blurted out that he wouldn’t have hired her if he had known she was expecting… he said this loud enough that the employee in question and the rest of the department overheard… so anyway I’m looking forward to spending my weekend preparing for the litigation that is sure to come.

I currently work for a not for profit in Australia, but have recently realised there is no room for career progression at my organisation (I was hired as an admin and was promoted to TA within two months but that's about as far as this organisation can take me). I have no qualifications in HR but was hoping my experience would get me a position in another company with growth opportunity.
What would be the best way to make a move?
Hello! I’m new to Human Resources (7 months). I definitely want a career and to be quite honest, make a lot of money. I wanted to know if anyone got their masters degree in Human Resources and recommends it or if studying and acquiring certifications should also suffice. I’m currently trying to decide between aPHR and SHRM. Thanks!
Has anyone bought/ done the HRCI Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion in HR Management? I already have my PHR, but I’m looking to gain more knowledge/skills and beef up my resume. Is it worth doing? The course is $239 and you get 12 Recert credits with it.
When will the older generations realize they’re losing this battle on remote work? People don’t stay 40 years at the same place anymore because it’s “safe”. People will just leave nowadays. And it’s exactly what people are doing. My company can’t hire ANYONE because we don’t offer a hybrid even. On the flip side, we’re losing people in masses at this point and can’t fill any of the roles because the owner (who works remotely) won’t allow it. But “no one wants to work”. Biggest lie of 2022.
Hello my first post, DME Territory Manager, who else sells DME.? Do you find that the market is saturated? Love the work and the company. But I feel like am fighting for scrapes.

Good day everyone,
I'm a recent grad who landed in Canada with a small dream of becoming a human resource professional and work in corporate sector.
I'm trying to land on a job from last 10 months, after applying to 100s of jobs, been on so many interviews I am still not getting anywhere.
I've started to loose all hopes!
It is my humble request to all experienced people, If anyone could guide me in right direction that would be highly appreciated.
I’m in a sales support role and almost always receive very positive feedback in my 1:1 meetings with my bosses and during my more formal year end reviews, but I can’t help but feel like I’m stuck or I’m missing something that’s stopping me from getting to the next level. Would love any general advice on showing I’m ready to be promoted beyond sharing my desire to be when the situation is appropriate. Thanks!
ADA situation, opinions needed. Non-profit religious school is the employer. Employer sponsored benefits plan doesn’t include any coverage for hearing aids. Administrator (8yr employee) went to specialist and very much needs hearing aids. No negative work impact, but likely has had miscommunications bc of this. Would you entertain this as an ADA request as the Hr person or what would be another recommendation? Not my company but the situation has me stumped.
If you were given a chance to change one decision you made in your life career-wise, what is it and why?
How do you handle a toxic leader in dictatorship environment? A leader that cannot take feedback, but instead manipulate you and yell at you for not “knowing your audience”. Oh and the company is owned by himself and his wife.

Do you feel like you faced any discrimination or prejudice based on your gender when you were starting your career in product, or do you face any now? I feel like product as an industry is fairly woman-friendly, but I'm wondering if that's just my experience. I struggled with some ahole professors in college but that's it. Thoughts?
