@C1 - chill out... just like business has to make accommodations to special needs people, business has to make accommodation to pregnant. Life does not stop for work..

Back to original question: yes you can request a roll-off it is becoming too much even if it is a local project. Talk to PMO or engagement leader. They will understand.

Lol did C1 really just classify avoiding pregnancy risk as a “personal preference”? All that’s missing is some vitriol about employer funded birth control and you’ve got yourself a SCOTUS nomination.

I mean no offense but this is kind of ridiculous. Why should the business have to make accommodations for your personal preference?

Get your doctor’s opinion. Most companies will accomodate a doctor’s guidance.

If it’s a precarious or high-risk pregnancy then with a doctor’s guidance most firms should be willing to accommodate to either make remote arrangements or roll you off to a closer location.

like

Yes, but needs to be handled delicately. Roll off can't be based on health condition without medical cause. Ideally the official reason would be based on fit and performance.

How many weeks are you in to your pregnancy? If it's early it's probably not a good excuse. If you're past the 24 week mark it's probably worth asking to work remotely instead of Rolling off. They'd rather have you for continuity than staff again. And you won't find another new project if you're pregnant and need to leave for maternity shortly

like

Depends. You can probably justify if it’s 1.5+ hour drive away. I’ve had bleeding during my pregnancy (even at 8 weeks!) which means I can’t do air travel for my client and probably wouldn’t want to do far drives in case I have an emergency on the road... and at the moment I can’t go too long without needing to pee. I suggest you have an alternative suggestion ready (some clients are cool with us working remote too!) but it’s definitely within your right to ask if you feel it’s reasonable (not if you’re 8 weeks with a healthy pregnancy and it’s a 40 min drive kind of thing.) Use your best judgment.

Instead of roll off try asking for alternate means of commute which might work better eg check if you can expense a cab

I misread the original post, I though that “in case of pregnancy” meant “I’m trying to get pregnant.” So calm down everyone

These responses are pathetic. Sorry you have to deal with that OP. I know how hard it is to have a scary / risky pregnancy. I stopped traveling even locally at 16 weeks because I had to be close to a hospital where I could go into labor, visit my baby in the NICU, etc. A fellow consultant stopped traveling after 20 weeks because her doctor told her that she wasn’t sleeping enough and was too stressed, and it was putting her baby at risk. (She didn’t have preeclampsia or anything... but had other stuff going on.) Key word is doctor. Share your concerns and your doc will either: (1) tell you that you have nothing to worry about, or (2) write you a medical order that your company should honor

like

I agree with consultant 1. Getting pregnant was your choice. The business and your coworkers don’t need to pick up your slack because you made a life choice. I just bought a house. I’d like to be with it to make sure it isn’t robbed while I’m on projects, so should I roll off and sit at home when the business needed me? It’s women like you who make it hard for hard working women. Roll all the way off. Leave this job and stay at home. I literally have no idea why women like this take up seats in schools where women could have used the education to support themselves financially. You are basically asking if you can take the food out of someone else’s mouth and the company’s accounts so you can sit at home out of choice.
WFH and leave are for people who wish they could be working with everyone else but can’t because they’re hurt or sick. Things that aren’t choices.

And I mean offense. I’m offended that you even asked this sort of question when there are hardworking women out there who wish they could have a job to take care of themselves. If you have a high risk or medical condition then go through the normal process. Pregnant people don’t deserve preferential treatment for getting pregnant.

like

Do you mean before you take maternity leave? And are you commuting daily rn? Maybe you can ask to be put up on a hotel

You have to be prepared to answer wha the alternative would be outside of you not working, given that flying to a project is much worse

I would also consider the definition of "far" as per Accenture policy. If it's not far enough to expense the miles, you may have a harder time selling the idea.

So you don't want to drive while you're pregnant? How far is far? This seems like an ideal situation for you.

C1 - that’s exactly what People management is. #WhyShudWeGivAF doesn’t really work. Ur dealing with Humans not robots. Also it’s offensive. Imagine someone close having a similar issue, wud u tell them the same response n using a * to justify “I mean no offense”.

Why not take your leave and have a wonderful experience ?
