A: CONGRATULATIONS on the arrival of your son. Speak to an employment lawyer and make an appointment to review your contract. You have the right to work anywhere you choose, so your best remedy may be in finding another employer who will give you the hours you want and the time off when you need it. As a contractor, one generally does not get paid vacation - time off even for the birth of a new child.
