Amee Kaur started this petition to Ministry of Labour

I am full time employee in a private firm in Ontario.I work as Senior accountant. Its February of 2019 so busy time for accounting firms.I was 8 week pregnant and lost my pregnancy around evening hours.

I was working on few files at that moment and still I had to go to work after one day of my miscarriage with Cramps and pain. First of all its so emotional time for family and than also physical weakness.I know how those last 4 days at work i had pass with no efficiency at work.it was more stressful and affected my more deeply afterwards.

I felt horrible even at work nobody bothered about what happened even after telling GM ,Senior managers and HR.I had to go work because i was only thinking i might loose my job because it was busy time.it was hard to sit,hard to stand for 8 hours.

Its a humble request to the Ministry of labour that there should be at-least one week or 5 days of mandatory paid days off for the girls who ever go through from this lose.It is so painful and also so emotional for the girl.With my experience I had three stress together, job,Health and pregnancy loss.Today we are talking about mental health and we are not even focusing completely on Causes.

Please share as much as possible because this can happen to any girl any time. At least at this time of pregnancy loss they don't have to think about losing job. This is unexpected and unplanned incidents that happens.
