Hi Pearl, I would like to ask about the right for fixed term contract employee. I have worked for the company over 2 year and my contract (1 year rolling contract) is ending end of this year. I am pregnant at this moment and I’m planning to go for maternity leave in mid Feb 2021. I am just wondering if they can not renewal my contract in the end of year. thank you so much. Phoebe
