Just wondering if from a practical & legal perspective if anyone has any advice or suggestions
Long story short decided to throw myself & my bike onto the road at the sight of an oncoming car not very clever I know
Anyway taken a few days holiday off as company does not pay sick pay. I popped into work today after visit to maxfax dept today to say I would be back to work asap, well long & the short of the story is that they are looking into legal implications due to nature of injury & currently are not going to allow me back & I will need to use my annual holiday entitlement up (which is the shortest entitlement of any company I have ever worked with)
Try the Directgov website for employment law and links. If you spend some time searching there are some free employment law forums on the web. If you are suspended from work at your employers insistence then this is not holiday. They would need to be following proper procedures.
If you have a household insurance policy they may cover you for legal advice.
I will have to wait until Monday to try CAB as the have very limited opening times.
I will try the Govt site Maccy, the company has taken legal advice apparently & if I get a letter from the Doctor to say I can work they will let me. They have a strictly no payment for time off rule for sickeness or operations.
They really are all heart when it comes to employees & I would hate to think paying me a few pounds would come between the directors buying each other Bentleys lol
