Don’t know what “mat leave” is. Is that slang for maternity leave? Why would you be training someone who has more experience than you? And why would it be an FML if she got the job over you?
Yes, mat leave would be maternity leave. OP is training the replacement because the replacement has more experience with the pregnant coworkers job duties but probably doesn't know the OP's office's specific procedural norms so has to be taught those. I'm not really sure why this is an FML. It doesn't make sense for the company to temporarily move OP to the coworker's job for a few months while the co-worker is out, hire a temporary replacement for OP's job that presumably still needs done too, and then move OP back to their original job when the co-worker is back. Makes more sense to just hire a temp to do the job of the person who's temporarily out on leave. Which is what they did.
