I currently work in a small cafe kitchen with only 2 chefs (myself and another one) and 2 kitchen/dish hands. We all work Friday -Sunday together and then I work Monday, Tuesday with one kitchen hand and the other chef works Wednesday, Thursday with the other one.
At the start of this year we found out the other chef is pregnant and is due in September. The problem that I am currently facing is that she believes that she is getting no help from anyone in the cafe and that she is basically doing all the work. To me this is a completely unfair accusation towards myself and my other co-workers. We try and get her to take breaks or to help her with cleaning up, etc but she always refuses and says no I'm fine. My workload on a Monday, Tuesday has pretty much doubled in the last month or so because she simply can't work as fast as she used to. I have also had to fill in for her multiple times when she has called in sick at the last minute. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about her being pregnant or her not being able to do as much as she used to but when I walk in on a Friday and she starts questioning me about why things weren't done and telling me that I need to be doing more, there's only so much I can take.
The owner/boss has tried talking to her about this but she always takes it the wrong way and thinks that everyone is against her, which we're not. If anyone has been in a situation like this or has any advice on how I can deal with this problem, that would be great!
