    Hi Ruby2880

    I’m Michelle one of the Moderators here in the forum.  I’m sorry to hear how you’re struggling at the moment, but it’s a good thing that you’re here talking about things and I hope other will begin to get to know you and offer some support with what you’re going through.

    There’s some information about sanctions within the following info page within the site that might, be relevant.  Here’s the link below:

    There’s also a section with information about your rights in the workplace.  Here a link:

    You could also get in touch with the Single Parents Helpline for some guidance around this situation.  Here are their contact details:
