Hello, I have an employee who will be going on pregnancy/maternity leave soon. She has informed me that she will likely be out for about 3 months. I will need to hire someone to cover her while she's gone, as my other employees will not be able to cover all of her duties.
My question is, Do I need to hire someone, only to fire them 3 months later when the employee returns from pregnancy leave? Or can I put the employee into another position when she returns from pregnancy leave?
If you could point me to any laws that address this issue, I'd appreciate that very much.
